Entrance Fee for Steamtown NHS: FREE
That's right! Our Visitor Center, Museum and grounds are free to enter, no pass required! Fees do apply to our train rides and excursions; this information is outlined below.
Due to our fee-free status, we do not sell the Senior or Annual pass. For more information about the America the Beautiful National Parks & Federal Recreational Lands Passes, or to purchase a Senior or Annual Pass, visit the USGS Online Store.
2021 Train Fees
Due to the pandemic there are no excursions planned for the 2021 season at this time, this includes the The Scranton Limited short train ride. All updates will be posted on our home page as an Alert and on our various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
When train rides are available, tickets are non-refundable unless an event is cancelled by park management and riders are unable to attend a make-up date. In the event you miss your Short Train Ride (yard shuttle), we can put you on the next available shuttle. If you miss the train for a special event or excursion program, tickets cannot be refunded or transferred. If you miss the return ride from a special event or excursion program, you are responsible for getting transportation back to your point of origin.
