Valley Forge Visitor Center

Official Visitor Center for Montgomery County, PA

The official Visitor Center for Valley Forge and Montgomery County is located at Valley Forge National Historical Park. 

On December 14, 2018 the National Park Service opened a new 5,760 square-foot Visitor Center within Valley Forge National Historical Park.  The opening of this new, temporary facility will enable construction to begin on a $12 million renovation to the current Visitor Center (built 1976).  Visitor services, including The Encampment Store, the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board information desk, public tours and the park orientation film will continue uninterrupted in the new Visitor Center.
