Correct Information about Steamtown National Historic Site. Museum Entrance is $7 for anyone 16 and older. Additional fee of $5 for short 30 minute train rides for anyone 6 and older. You must pay the Entrance fee to do the train ride. Opens at 9 am- Closes 5pm. Short train rides 10:30, 11:30, 1:30, and 2:15. You can call 570-340-5203 / 5204 / 5200 for updated information. GPS address is 350 Cliff Ave or 4 Lackawanna Ave., Scranton, PA 18503 brings you to the correct entrance of the park. NOT 150 S. Washington Ave. I work at Steamtown, I have the current correct information.
Pro: Train museum has many great pieces of rail history to examine, several still run.
Con: Rides and events end rather early (last ride starts 2:30) and large areas were self guided with only limited signs. Website helpful but "busy": requires some digging.
Basics: Train museum only $8 ($3 more for a short ride). For best experience double check details, ask questions and arrive early.
Finally had the opportunity to visit Steamtown! Definately worth the time! Took the trolley ride and visited the museum. Great displays and wonderful history. Lots to learn and enjoy. And you can't beat the price! Make a day of it!
Would highly recommend to everyone! I went with my boyfriend and we had a great time! Also would be great for families.
I went here with my family on several occasions. There is something for everyone here. Even if you do not pay for a train ride or to go into the museum, you can enjoy walking the grounds outside. There are many old trains to look at and you can watch steam engines going down the tracks for free. There is a convenient wooden elevated walkway with a great view that takes you from the museum area to an attractive mall. It is a wonderful place to take family. Adults get caught up in the magic and the whole family has fun.
Loved the steam trains. The resored roundhouse, museum & theatre all wonderful. A short ride on a steam train is included. One is able to roam the entire place and enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells of a real steam train yard. Good value for $6.00.
