Museum Day Hours of Operation: 9:00 am ‐ 5:00 pm

Opened to the public in 1975, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is home to a world-class collection of more than 100 historic locomotives and railroad cars -- some of which are open to explore -- a working restoration shop, a vast library and archives, an immersive, hands-on education center, a Museum store and unique special events, programs and exhibits.


The original core of our collection, since greatly expanded, is a fantastic assortment of vintage locomotives and rolling stock that the Pennsylvania Railroad assembled for the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair.

This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone and in person.
