Learning In Motion

Education Tours & Classes at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania

All Aboard! Learn about America’s transportation heritage through the use of hands-on activities, primary sources, vintage vehicles and artifacts from the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania’s world-class collection. A variety of guided walking tours, workshops and outreach programs offer interactive experiences for students in the preschool through secondary levels and beyond.

We are more than just a history museum. Our education programs satisfy specific academic standards not only in history, but also in math, science, language arts, geography, economics, and the arts, among other subjects. Our programs also encourage students not only to ask questions but also to use critical-thinking and problem-solving skills when thinking about how people in the past overcame challenges related to technology and transportation.
