Railroad Museum, Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Railroad Museum is a place where the people who make the history come alive, and it’s not too far from my hometown.
It’s a place I visit frequently to get a sense of the history, but I also know how important it is to see the people and their stories firsthand.
The Railroad Museum has a collection of historic items and artifacts, and they’ve been in business for more than 30 years.
One of the museum’s main attractions is the Museum of the Great American Railroading, which has been around for decades.
“The first thing you see in the museum is the railroads,” says Joe Stokes, an assistant curator.
A small museum inside the museum, the Railroad Museum displays artifacts that tell the story of the American railroad, from the beginnings of railroads in the 1820s to the modern day.
Stokes says it’s important to go to the Museum to get an idea of how railroads really worked, and how they shaped our culture.
“The railroad was a way of life, a way for the American people to get from point A to point B, and that was the great way of living,” he says.
I asked Stokes to tell me a bit about how the museum was born, what led to it becoming a museum, and what it’s like being a museum curator.
