Railroaders Memorial Museum

Railroaders Memorial Museum

The Railroaders Memorial Museum seeks to preserve the stories of Central Pennsylvania railroaders who left an imprint on their communities, industry, and nation. In 1998, the museum moved into the Pennsylvania Railroad’s former Master Mechanics Building. Constructed in 1882, the structure was used for a century of railroad operations and still stands as a stunning monument to the individuals who built it. Displays include a rich array of artifacts, immersive environments, and colorful orientation films. A Museum Store offers a wide variety of merchandise fit for any railfan or history buff! The Harry Bennett Memorial Roundhouse features a working 105-foot turntable and tracks that display the museum’s rolling stock collection. PRR K4s 1361 serves as an additional highlight. The museum hosts a multitude of programs and special events. Through volunteers and members, this non-profit organization fulfills its mission of preserving railroading heritage.
