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.
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!
Pennsylvania Trolley Museum is in the midst of a $16.5 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 in on particular vehicles in the fleet or different fundraising initiatives. This year, the Museum is highlighting the Red Arrow Fund and car #73, Pittsburgh Railways #1138 Philadelphia #8042, the Reliance & Archives fund, and the General Fund.
In addition to the sponsorship and naming opportunities provided by PTM’s Capital Campaign, the Museum also offers several levels Corporate Memberships. Each level includes benefits such as free admission, store discounts, and the opportunity to host an event at PTM.
