Fees & Passes

Entrance Fee for Steamtown NHS: FREE

That's right, our Visitor Center, Museums, and grounds are free to enter; no pass required! Due to our fee-free status, we no longer issue any of the America the Beautiful National Parks & Federal Recreational Lands Passes, commonly referred to as the "National Park Passes".

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, either the Scranton Limited or Caboose Experience, we can put you aboard the next ride as long as its not sold out or was the last train of the day. 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.
