Pennsylvania Railroad Museum 2


The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania preserves and interprets the history of the past and recognizes that history is still being made. The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is located in eastern Pennsylvania in the town of Strasburg. The museum was opened in 1975. The museum has on display a large and significant collection of Pennsylvania-related motive power and rolling stock spanning the years 1825 to the present.

Public areas in the Museum include a two story building (with a large 'Rolling Stock Hall') and an outdoor area (complete with a turntable). The Rolling Stock Hall houses much of the older (and smaller) display pieces.

The museum also presents history through special events with expert speakers and exhibits.
