Donations of Artifacts

If you have objects that you would like to donate to the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, please contact the Museum Curator at dodrobbins@pa.gov or (717) 687-8628, ext. 3103.

The museum will not accept unsolicited donations mailed or dropped off at the museum.

All donation offers of artifacts and archival materials are reviewed by museum staff to determine appropriateness to the museum’s overall collection. In most cases, accepted items have a strong link to railroading and Pennsylvania, are in good condition and do not duplicate our current holdings. All offers are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

As a matter of practice, the museum does not provide appraisals.
