Visiting the Incline
The Visitors Center
The Visitors Center provides an extensive orientation area for visitors to Johnstown, describing the various tourist attractions available in the region. Its spacious and informative display area was created by Metaform, Inc., the same company that designed the displays for New York’s Statue of Liberty. These include some historic images of Johnstown's various floods as well as three-dimensional displays that model how Johnstown looked back in the canal days.
In the lobby to the right of the Visitors Center is a large window from which you can view the motors and machinery that control the Inclined Plane.
Each view gives a unique perspective on the cables, motors, and mechanisms that control the Incline's journey.
The Incline Gift Shop
Our Gift Shop is atop the Inclined Plane. This is a great place to find an assortment of affordable gift items, collectibles, clothing, souvenirs, post cards, maps, tourist information, soft drinks, candy and popcorn. We also feature unique Inclined Plane collectibles including special addition coins, Christmas ornaments, books, t-shirts, and sweatshirts. The Gift Shop also features a window from which you can view the motors and machinery that control the Inclined Plane. Stop in and watch how the mechanism works.
