Visitors please note that the ticket office closes one hour prior to park closing.

The Park's museums and grounds, including outdoor exhibit areas, parking lot and the connecting walkway* to the Marketplace at Steamtown, close promptly at 5:00 pm (4:00 pm Winter).

During severe weather events, the Park may delay opening, close early or close entirely. Park closing and/or delayed opening notices are available by phoning (570) 340-5200 or (888) 693-9391 after 7 am; they may not be posted online. Early close notices are available at the above numbers and online when announced by Park management. Please be sure to plan accordingly.

(*IMPORTANT NOTE!: The connecting walkway to the "Marketplace at Steamtown" is not the property of the National Park Service or Steamtown National Historic Site, and is subject to closure during inclement or severe weather. Additionally, this walkway is not maintained and is generally closed during the winter months. Parking at the "Marketplace at Steamtown" is, therefore, not recommended.)
