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.

Fantastic trip to see the many trains on display there. Pretty big place but manageable in a few hours

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!

We visited this free National Park Service museum today beginning with the Visitor Center’s nostalgic film on rail travel by steam engine. The reduction in time and increase in comfort compared to stagecoach travel led to its popularity until that changed with the lowered cost of an automobile.
We especially liked the 1914 Postal Car with all the cubby holes marked with cities and the 1929 Business Car with bathrooms between compartments. Lots of detailed explanations throughout the various halls and every outdoor locomotive was identified. The #4012 “Big Boy” was most impressive. Great museum featuring the steam period 1850 to 1950.

We spent a wonderful afternoon here. The museum is fascinating & the exhibits are very informative. The history of the railroad in the US is much more extensive than we learn in school. This museum does a great job of educating the public on this fascinating part of our history.

We went while the COVID protocols were being enforced. Felt very safe.

Adults and kids will enjoy this historic site. Some of it is inside and some of it is outside. Kids can climb on trains.
