Activites at Steamtown may vary depending on the season, but there is always plenty to do!

Discover the history of steam locomotives and the anthracite railroads by watching our 18-minute orientation film "Steel and Steam" or browsing through our History Museum. Explore the Roundhouse and get an up close and personal look at our rolling stock. Be in the "room where it happens" and join a park ranger or volunteer on a guided tour of Steamtown's Locomotive Repair Shop. Find that perfect souvenir to capture your Steamtown experience or give as a gift to a train enthusiast in our Park Store. Last, but certainly not least, hop on board our seasonal short train rides or longer train excursions for the ultimate hands on Steamtown experience.
