Steamtown National Historic Site

Steamtown National Historic Site

Steamtown offers a Technology Museum and History Museum. These modern buildings explore the people, history, technology and lore of steam railroading. The museums include images, artifacts, films, restored freight and passenger cars and a sectioned steam locomotive. The park also offers walking tours of the Locomotive Repair Shop almost every day of the year. This building (parts of which date from the 1860s) houses the machinery used to make parts for steam locomotives, and provides space for repairs and restoration projects.

We hope you enjoy our work.
