The Fort Necessity/National Road Interpretive and Education Center is the visitor center for the park. The twenty-minute orientation film "Road of Necessity" takes viewer along the path from Washington's first trip over the Alleghenies to the creation of the National Road. Interactive exhibits in the center immerse the visitor in the French and Indian War and the heyday of stagecoach and wagon travel along the National Road.

The Mount Washington Tavern museum is open May through October. The Mount Washington Tavern operated as a stage stop from 1828 to 1855. It now serves as a museum focusing on life along the National Road.
