Fees & Passes

No entrance pass required

An entrance pass is not required to access Sainte Geneviève National Historical Park.

Other National Park Service sites may require an entrance pass or fee. Depending on your trip plans, an interagency pass may save you money.

Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park is fee-free. This means that there is no admission cost for visitors exploring the park grounds, visiting the welcome center, touring the historic houses, or attending events within the National Historical Park. Tours for the Jean Baptiste Valle House, Green Tree Tavern, and Bauvais-Amoureux House have a 15-person capacity and require same-day reservations. Free reservations can be made in person at the Ste. Genevieve Welcome Center, located at 66 S. Main Street.
