The kids LOVED this stop. Note you'll have to pick up your Jr Ranger book from the information stand where they sell the train tickets. The museum is GIANT with one section covering the science of steam engines and trains, another section dealing with the history of train travel in the US, a working round house that you can walk through and the train yard. Lots of hands on exhibits included on steam engine the kids can get in and ring the bell. If you combined this with trolley museum next door you have a full day. Staff was great with the kids.

Jr Ranger book for grade schoolers was a bit more difficult that normal. Several of the questions we couldn't find in the museums and we ended up just googling the answer.

This is a great place to spend an hour or two. It is interesting for all ages, even if you are not a train buff. Big Boy is an incredible locomotive!

Craig Hockenberry: Steamtown National Historic Site was a great stop in Scranton, PA. The staff was amazing, kind and very helpful. The movie was very helpful and I had the chance to interact with several workers. Great place I highly recommend spending 2 hours. The exhibits were well done and I felt like I left there with an amazing understand of the importance of trains and the impact they had on America.

This place is great! A nice collection of amazing machines and historical information, both local and national, all displayed in an attractive mix of original and new buildings. It is very well-kept, and FREE! The NPS Rangers are excellent, knowledgeable, and friendly. If you are going to be anywhere near here you should definitely include this stop! If you are a train enthusiast this is certainly worth a special trip even if you’re not in the area. Great job NPS!

This is a National Park so entry is free, with your visit facilitated by Park Rangers. The site is large and can easily accommodate a good number of visitors quite safely. Masks are required, it's a Federal facility.
There is plenty of free parking (the Trolley Museum is directly across the parking lot). There are activities for all ages, with most of the site suitable for all. There are stairs in several of the buildings but also ramps and elevators.
The theatre with a short film provides a good introduction. There are many detailed exhibits highlighting the complex railroad heritage of the Scranton area as well as the trains that are on display.

If you’re into railroading this is a must see place. As a model railroader, I could recognize the different locomotives without reading signs. Very educational. The excursion ride wasn’t running that day, but I was able to see the GP9 running that pulls it. I saw the “Big Boy” 4012 when it was in Bellows Falls VT. Also saw it’s brother 4018 at museum in Dallas,TX. As we all know 4014 has been renovated by UP and is currently running in Texas on it’s way to Louisiana. In the restoration yard which was closed, there was an ALCO RS-3 you could see in the distance. For the novice, the cross section of a locomotive to see how it works is really good. The railroad figures (engineer, fireman, etc) with a description of their job is well done. Unlike the museum in Dallas, you can’t climb into the cab of a locomotive. Figure on a few hours spending here. It’s a National Historic site so no fees unless you go on excursions. Bottom line is, this is a must see.

If you like vintage trains, this place is for you.

Exit 185 off Interstate 81. There are hotels 5 minutes away.

Stay at the Hilton on Adams Street.

I was here 35 years ago and it really wasn't much then. Now it's fantastic. You start with a movie, then an educational tour through yhe museum which includes walking thru an old mail car and a business car. Then into the roundhouse where engines a d other rolling stock are on display. Finish up lut at the turntable. Everthing was bery well done. And it's all FREE. Don't miss this place!
