THE RAILROAD MUSEUM OF PENNSYLVANIA - “REAL TRAINS…REAL HISTORY”
Did you know the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania (located in Strasburg, Lancaster County) was the first major museum created to preserve and document the rich heritage of railroading in America?
And lucky for us, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is also considered one of the top three railroad museums on the planet.
With a world-class collection of over 100 historic locomotives and vintage railroad cars ; hundreds of thousands of railroad artifacts ; an interactive education center ; a vast library ; a working restoration shop and authentic museum store – the Railroad museum of Pennsylvania is an experience for every member of the family.
Do you need to be a rail fan or train fanatic to enjoy a day at the museum? “Absolutely not”, says Patrick Morrison, Director of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania – “but you may become one.” “If you want to learn about American history, specifically Pennsylvania history, you won’t leave disappointed”.
Patrick Morrison and Craig Haberle, a member of the non-profit “Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania”, will be my “Let’s Talk Travel with AAA” guests Saturday, March 16th at 11am on WHP580.
