Site Updates:

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania remains closed to the public. The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission is delaying the reopening of state-owned historic sites and museums, including the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, until further notice. With COVID-19 cases increasing across the country, we need to take every precaution possible to prevent a surge here in Pennsylvania.
