The Sigal Museum is Northampton County, Pennsylvania’s leading institution of local history, and home to significant collections of pre-European settlement artifacts, decorative arts and textiles, farming implements and colonial furniture. The Museum opened in summer of 2010, offering its visitors interactive exhibits, self-guided and docent-led tours, special children’s programs, and a lecture series on local and American history. It is one of four museums operated by the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society (NCHGS) in Easton, the county seat.In addition to its exhibits, the Sigal Museum is home to the Jane S. Moyer Library, providing vast and often rare resources for students, scholars, and genealogical researchers.
The Charles Chrin Changing Gallery serves as a showcase for special exhibits, highlighting collections of the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society and its partners.
The Museum serves as a gathering place and a cultural center, visited by youth and adults for programs in fraktur art, on Lenape Lifeways, and story-telling. Works by current regional artists have also found a home in this center for old and new history, and are highlighted on a rotating basis.
The Easton Visitor Center is now at the Sigal Museum!
