Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site welcomes all families! There are lots of great things to see and do that enable all ages to have both an enjoyable and educational visit to this great National Park.

Below are some of the unique ways children, in particular, can experience Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site:

Junior Ranger:
Children can participate in the Junior Ranger program! The Junior Ranger program is an activity based program that allows participants to learn about the park. To learn more about our Junior Ranger program click here!

Demonstrations:
During the summer months, there are a variety of demonstrations done by costumed park rangers. Many times the ranger needs YOUR help. Activities range from assisting with tools, to fashioning a stone sleeper, to making your very own piece of rope to take home with you!

Scout Programs:
We welcome your scout troop to Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site! Scouts can either participate in the Junior Ranger program or participate in a self-guided tour of the park. For more information, please contact (814) 886-6150.
