Things To Do

Park Rangers reccomend 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 intinerary that best fits your interests for the day. There are variety of options from joining a scheduled ranger tour, viewing the historic buildings around the neighborhood, visiting the Pullman Exhibit Hall, or visiting the National A. Phlip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum.

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 neighboorhood. However, consider coming back again to learn more about how Pullman stories transformed America and the world!
