Support - Member Benefits


We appreciate our members, and our annual Member Days are a big way we show it. Through the support and generosity of the participating businesses we are able to provide these great events for our members - free! Bring your member card with you to check-in at any of our WVIA Family Days, such as our Ski Days and WVIA Family Day at Knoebels Amusement Resort. 

In addition, WVIA offers many discounts to regional events and more.  Check this page often to stay up-to-date on the benefits of your membership.

Fall 2015 Family Day

WVIA Family Event at the Lackawanna County Coal Mine and Anthracite Heritage Museum

At McDade Park in Scranton


4 Day Family Event

Saturday, November 7th and November 14th from 10a to 2p

Sunday, November 8th and November 15th from 10a to 2p


Descend slowly into the earth in a Mine Car as you enter the Lackawanna County Coal Mine where the temperature is a constant 53 degrees year round. There are no remaining active deep mines in the area, so you are literally “going down in history”. The Anthracite Heritage Museum tells the story of the people who came from Europe to work in the Anthracite Mining and Textiles Industries.
