Experience railroading’s glorious past at the unforgettable Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. You’ll discover the captivating stories of men and women who built, operated and traveled on the railroads, and encounter first-hand the colorful history and technology of the industry that transformed America.
Climb aboard a caboose, take the throttle in an authentic freight locomotive cab, inspect a 62-ton engine from underneath and go hands-on in the delightful Stewart Junction railway education center! We’re Pennsylvania’s premier museum of railroad heritage, with an impressive, world-class collection of more than 100 historic locomotives and railroad cars on exhibit, along with many fascinating works of art and artifacts.
Take advantage of substantial discounts on group rates and complimentary admission for your group escort and driver. Convenient boarding and ample free bus parking are available on site. Special interpretive tours — you can even go behind the scenes in the restoration shop or from the farm to the table by train — are guided by friendly and knowledgeable docents. Self-guided tours also bring the rich heritage of American railroading to life.
Consider visiting during a popular special event, like Trains & Troops or Home for The Holidays, and don’t forget to browse the Whistle Stop Shop museum store for unique and exclusive gifts. A variety of wonderful attractions, shopping, dining and lodging located nearby in historic Strasburg and Lancaster County will complement your group’s memorable experience at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.
