Unfortunately, while the Marketplace shares part of our name, the mall is not associated with Steamtown NHS. The Marketplace has its own parking garage and rules. Steamtown NHS provides free parking for visitors while they enjoy our museum and park-provided events/activities.
Anyone is allowed to take photos and videos at Steamtown NHS as long as it is using a regular camera and no props are involved. Please note: You will only be allowed in the same areas the general public is allowed.
