Admission is free to visit the Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site, as well as all five Western Pennsylvania National Parks.
The America the Beautiful Annual Pass, and the America the Beautiful Senior Pass are no longer sold at the site. These passes are available at either a park that does charge admission fees or by clicking on the highlighted link America the Beautiful Passes. Please note that for the America the Beautiful Senior Pass, there is an additional $10.00 processing fee for applications by mail.
