Persons traveling by train should take Amtrak to the Lancaster, PA station. From there, taxi service to the Museum in Strasburg may be hired.
The Museum may be reached easily from major arteries.
Persons coming north on Interstate 95 should exit at I-476 and follow it north to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and get on the Turnpike westbound (Interstate 76 West) and follow the instructions below.
Persons coming south on Interstate 95 should exit onto US 1 south (please do not take Business Route 1) about 5 miles after entering Pennsylvania from New Jersey. Follow the signs directing you to the Pennsylvania Turnpike westbound (Interstate 76 West).
Travelers on the Pennsylvania Turnpike may use several exits, but the easiest for people not familiar with the area is Exit 286 (formerly 21) -- the Reading exit. Upon exiting, take US 222 south to US Route 30 east. Then turn right on to State Route 896 south to Strasburg. Watch for a traffic signal at which Route 896 turns left on the new bypass (Historic Drive). At its intersection with State Route 741 (known locally as Gap Road), turn left (east). Follow that road for about a a third of a mile. The Museum will be on your right, and the Strasburg Rail Road will be on the left.
Travelers coming from the east going westbound on the Pennsylvania Turnpike may also exit the Turnpike at Downingtown (Exit 312, formerly 23), then follow south on PA 100 about one mile, then right south on PA 113 four or five miles, and take the marked ramp to West on US 30. Then stay on 30 into the town of Gap. There, watch for a left at a signal on to PA 41 south, take that about half a mile, then hard right on to PA 741 west, which veers right immediately after you get on it. Stay on 741 west (sometimes locally called Strasburg Road, but signed as 741) about 8 miles, enjoying the farmland scenery. Please be courteous to the Amish buggies! The Museum is on the left, across the street from the Strasburg Rail Road.
Ample parking is available on the east side of the building. If you have any questions, please check the Hours, Events, Admission page for more information regarding Museum hours.
