Volunteers with a passion for local history, education, and/or transportation are needed to conduct guided tours of our Trolley Display Building. Becoming a Trolley Museum Tour Guide is a fun unique experience to work with the community and educate visitors about Trolleys and the Trolley Era. Training and orientation will be given. Tour Guide volunteers should have knowledge or interest in learning about the Trolley Era, and be comfortable working with the public (especially children) and public speaking. Tour guides are needed Weekends and Weekdays for regular operations, special events, and specially scheduled field trips.

This is a really exciting time for you to volunteer. This year the Museum plans on starting a multi-million dollar expansion into a new building. We are really looking for help from people like you to help support the museum on this journey!

**Please be advised that all volunteers must be a minimum 14 years of age. Those who are 14 & 15 years old must be accompanied by legal parent / guardian. All volunteers of age of majority must provide their PA Clearances per PA State Law**

***We follow CDC and PA guidelines, all non-vaccinated people need to continue to wear masks/face coverings. In addition, TSA currently requires that masks/face coverings are worn on all mass transit vehicles even if you are vaccinated.***

About Pennsylvania Trolley Museum

Location:

1 Museum Road, Washington, PA 15301, US

Mission Statement

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum's mission is to communicate the story of Pennsylvania's Trolley Era to a diverse audience through the preservation, interpretation, and use of its collection of electric railway and railroad equipment, associated artifacts and photo/document archives, and to ensure that its visitors have an enjoyable and rewarding educational experience.

Description

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum has evolved over the past 50 years from a handful of volunteers and a few trolleys to over 600 members and approximately 50 trolleys preserved at its museum in Washington, Pennsylvania. Visitors get a unique opportunity to actually experience the Trolley Era first hand by riding the Museum's beautifully restored streetcars for a scenic four-mile ride. The museum is also on track to build a new integrated, immersive complex that will significantly expand our education programs and serve as our new "front door". The museum is offering a variety of rewarding volunteer opportunities as we prepare for this exciting time in the museum's future.
