The Heritage Discovery center is adjacent to the Penn State Downtown Conference Center. Owned and operated by the Allegheny Ridge Corporation, it is a heritage interpretation site and exhibit space.

The Discovery Center will initially house two permanent exhibits, The County Arts Hall of Fame and a transportation themed exhibit, including a permanent map, explanatory panels/brochures, kiosks and other supplemental elements.

The Heritage Discovery Center once stood vacant for years, is once again serving as a business and cultural hub for the city of Altoona.
