Things To Do

Park Rangers recommend setting aside a half day to explore Pullman National Historical Park.

If you only have a couple of hours, start at the Administration-Clock Tower Building to enjoy introductory exhibits by the National Park Service. A ranger can help craft a trip itinerary that best fits your interests for the day. There are a variety of ways to spend your day in Pullman from joining a scheduled ranger tour, viewing the historic buildings around the neighborhood, or even visiting our partners. Explore the Historic Pullman Foundation's Pullman Exhibit Hall, connect with civil rights history at the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum, or take in the rich interiors of the Pullman House Project.

With an hour or less, we suggest opening a self-guided tour of Pullman on the NPS App and grabbing a park brochure before getting out there to see the historic neighborhood. However, consider coming back again to learn more about how Pullman stories transformed America and the world!
