Downtown Scranton’s Steamtown National Historic Site is dedicated to Pennsylvania’s trove of railroad history, and its long relationship to the coal industry. Narratives of local legends, famous conductors and engineers weave through the museum building, visitor’s center and grounds, all of which are open to the public.

On top of admiring the locomotives, you can also take your own short train ride, summer excursion or fall foliage tour. While the Caboose takes you on a 20-minute ride within the park limits, the Scranton Limited offers a 30-minute adventure that incorporates historic buildings and the Lackawanna River into the itinerary. A Holiday Express option is available when the season calls.

Limited experiences, festivals and other events can often be found on the Steamtown schedule, and the site is part of the United States National Parks system.

We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in Scranton, PA!
