The Crayola FACTORY® Provides Families an Opportunity for Quality Time.

Families can explore various exhibits such as: Crayola Chronology, dedicated to recognizing the most colorful moments and characters in Crayola history; Easton Press & Bindery, exploring traditional and non-traditional print-making techniques; and Crayola Meltdown, where kids get to create three-dimensional art with melted crayon wax!


The Crayola FACTORY opened in 1996 partly to satisfy the popular and overwhelming demand for tours of Crayola’s manufacturing facility.  These tours were given for more than 20 years, often with visitors reserving spots two years in advance.  Since opening in 1996, more than 3 million people have watched crayon and marker manufacturing demonstrations at The Crayola FACTORY, and there are no waiting lists!


Not only is The Crayola FACTORY a great place to visit during the day, but it is also available to rent in the evenings.   The Crayola FACTORY has been the site of banquets, wedding receptions, family reunions and other after hour’s events.  According to Ramona Hollie-Major,  “Facility Rentals are a way for us to reach out to a new audience.  Many people who attend events here have never set foot inside the facility before and leave with a new awareness of what we have to offer.”


The Crayola FACTORY is located on the second floor of Two Rivers Landing, a distinctive building located in downtown Easton.  Two Rivers Landing is also home to the National Canal Museum, the National Heritage Corridor, the Museum Shop and McDonald’s restaurant.  Two doors down is The Crayola Store®, the most colorful store in the world, where you can see the Worlds Largest Crayon while shopping for the coolest Crayola® branded products anywhere.


Visitors to Two Rivers Landing pay one admission price which grants entrance to The Crayola FACTORY and the National Canal Museum.  Summer months are the busiest and reservations are recommended for visits during this season.  The 2005 pricing and hours schedule appears below.  For complete information on hours, activities, discounts, and programs, call 610-515-8000 or visit
