Support PTM

Your support helps PTM bring Pennsylvania’s Trolley Era to life in exciting and relevant ways for generations young and young-at-heart. Here are just a few of the ways you can help!


Make A Donation

Admissions only cover a portion of the Museum’s operating costs. Your donation – of any amount – will help to further the Museum’s mission of creating a living history experience that educates visitors about life during the Trolley Era.

Become A Member

Becoming a member of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is an excellent way to support the mission of the Museum and to save money on the cost of visits to the Museum and the purchase of merchandise at the Museum store.


Volunteer Your Time And Skills

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is a nonprofit educational organization that depends largely on volunteers for its continued operation and success. Our volunteers serve in a wide range of roles from assisting in special events, restoring historic streetcars, keeping our grounds neat and safe, and more!

Capital Campaign

Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is in the midst of a $14+ million expansion plan that will fund the construction of an all-new Welcome & Education Center, develop outdoor interactive learning experiences, and add state-of-the-art programs and exhibits.

Each year, the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum focuses on particular vehicles in the fleet and different fundraising initiatives. This year, the Museum is highlighting the Red Arrow Fund, Philadelphia #8042, the Archives New Home, 1713 (the Terrible Trolley), and the General Fund.

Planned Giving

Planned giving can be a powerful element of wealth management strategy or the estate planning process and can be arranged to benefit the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum while providing a life income source for spouses and other family members. Planned gifts are a popular method of giving because they can provide powerful tax benefits and sources of income.


Corporate Opportunities

In addition to the sponsorship and naming opportunities provided by PTM’s Capital Campaign, the Museum also offers several levels of Corporate Sponsorships. Each level includes benefits such as free admission, store discounts, and the opportunity to host an event at PTM.
