Tickets: Our museums and tours require tickets. We recommend the Pass into History, which allows guests to enjoy our history in the most economic way. Walking and bus tours have separate fees. Remember: Members enjoy musuem tours for FREE!
Visitors with Special Needs: Because many of our structures were built in the 18th century, please contact us if you need extra assistance or special arrangements.
Enjoying the History: Families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at Burnside Plantation or in the Colonial Industrial Quarter.
Personal photography is permitted of the exteriors of our buildings. Please refrain from taking pictures indoors, since the flash harms our museum collections. No food, drink, pets, or gum are permitted within the historic buildings. Thank you for being a part of preserving our history.
Historic Bethlehem sites are all within walking distance, so bring your sneakers and beware of time-worn sidewalks and streets. Burnside Plantation, our farm in the city, is only a 2-minute carride from downtown!
The Historic Bethlehem Visitor Center is funded in part through our friends at Discover Lehigh Valley.
