Fees & Passes

New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park is a fee free park, meaning you don't need a pass to enter the park. Please note that entrance fees may be charged at privately owned museums and other similar sites within the National Park, including park partners. These sites rely on admission fees as they do not receive federal funding for operations and therefore do not accept the National Parks Pass for admission.

America the Beautiful Passes, including the Lifetime Senior Pass, are sold at New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park's visitor center, located at 33 William Street, downtown New Bedford.
