Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites works to preserve and share 20 historic structures, two National Historic Landmarks, 60,000+ artifacts, Historic Moravian Bethlehem - a National Historic Landmark District shortlisted to the World Heritage List, and three centuries of local history with the public.

Visible are the railroad trestle over the Lehigh River, homes in West Bethlehem, the Broad Street Bridge, Hotel Bethlehem, the belfry of the Central Moravian Church and homes in the northeast section of Bethlehem.
