Weclome to the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
Welcome to PA History 2 G0, a series of videos produced by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC), with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. These short videos serve to introduce you, the virtual visitor, to Pennsylvania's state-owned historic sites and museums as we explore the varied stories that make up the commonwealth's rich history.
The mission of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is to preserve and interpret the commonwealth’s rich railroad history. This video highlights the ways in which the locomotives and freight and passenger cars in the museum’s collection, as well as documents and images in its library and archival collections, are preserved and made available for the benefit of visitors and future generations.
