The Horseshoe Curve is designated as National Historic “Landmark” not a National Historic “Site”; thus it is NOT part of the National Park Service system and does not receive a government subsidy.
The Horseshoe Curve is operated by the Altoona Railroaders memorial Museum, a private non-profit organization. As such, it depends on monetary donations, and gift shop income, to cover operating expenses.
With your support we continue to preserve this living memorial for generations to come.
