Sensory Friendly Hours at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is pleased to offer new, additional open hours for children and community members with special sensory needs.  During the sensory hours from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 11 and on Tuesday, January 25, the Museum will reduce lighting, sounds and maintain a low attendance. There will be quiet spaces for breaks set up in a few of the gallery areas. A few of the historic trains will be open, with Museum staff present to answer questions.

Advance registration on Eventbrite is required for all attendees on both dates. The cost for attendance is:

  • $7.00 per person for ages 3 and up.
  • Free of charge for ages 2 and under.
  • Free of charge for paid aides, which includes a personal assistant or a one-on-one aide.
  • Free of charge for current members of the Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is home to a world-class collection of about 100 historic locomotives and railroad cars, a vast research library and archives, a working restoration shop, an immersive education center and programs, a Museum store and special events and exhibits. A Smithsonian Affiliate, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is one of 24 historic sites and museums administered by the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission as part of the Pennsylvania Trails of History®, with the active support of the nonprofit Friends of the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.
