Simply paid an admission charge ($4.00) to view a vast number of vendor stalls. Not worth the time of expense.

We traveled to Bethlehem at Christmas time, of course! We wanted to visit the Christmas Market (well, I did! My husband patronized me). $7 admission. Much better than the Christmas Market at Love Park in Philly, but still not that great. If I wasn't already on a business trip and in the area, I would have been upset! I didn't... More

Tour was good, the plant itself is wonderful, especially around Christmas time. Decorations and very :steampunky" make together an unreal picture. Very nice

We go there allot in summertime on weekend evenings to watch the free outdoor concerts. It is a nice place to start evening before heading to Sands Casino. The Steel Stacks also was great to watch The World Cup games on the big screens.

Have been here several times to see shows. The atmosphere is excellent. Small stage with a view of the steel stacks in the background. The people we have seen have all been great and the audience very receptive. However, the table service for drinks and food is horrendous. Waited over 30 minutes for our beers and 45 for our food...

The former steel foundry has been turned into a retail and entertainment venue. They have handicap parking, but then you have to go way too far to get to the main buildings. I don't understand why the handicap parking is so far away from the building! There are interesting displays that come and go. Right now, there was a glass... More

The steel stacks main campus includes an opportunity to see an overview of Bethelhem and the rise and fall of Bethlehem Steel both in movie format 20 minutes, and walking tour one hour. The movie is very light weight in that there's not too much detail about Bethlehem Steel if you are highly interested in that topic. But gives a... More

I've been meaning to write a review of the Peas and Q's portion of the ArtsQuest at SteelStacks. Peas and Q's is a free Saturday morning activity for young kids that takes place outdoors on the patio in warmer weather, and indoors in the cold. It lasts an hour, from 11:30 to 12:30, but the kids have such a wonderful... More

A major part of history preserved here. At night the stacks are lit up. Many arts and music activities happen in this area. Be careful at night
