The National Iron & Steel Heritage Museum includes exhibits, historic buildings, and steel products that can be seen by visitors. For those who want to see the grounds only, free brochures are available by the doors at the Lukens Executive Office Building. The brochure is designed for self-guided tours and includes a map to the illustrated history panels found throughout the grounds.

The Museum is open for General Admission from 10am to 4pm, Monday through Saturday. General Admission times are at 10 am, 12:30 pm, & 3 pm.

General Admission, which includes a tour guide, includes access to exhibits in the Visitor Center, inside the Lukens Executive Office Building (1902/1916), the former office space for company executives, and the 120" Mill Motor House (1942), the power plant for the rolling 120" rolling mill complex.

Also housed in the Motor House are the Guppy submersible, two historic fire trucks, one historic ambulance and a collection of equipment used in steel industry testing laboratories. These indoor exhibits explore the steel making process, steel products, and the history of the American steel industry.

Add-on excursions allow visitors inside two historic ironmasters’ homes: Terracina (1850), and Graystone Mansion (1889). The third ironmasters' home, Brandywine Mansion (c1739) is under reconstruction and not open for tours.
