How to Give Minimize
The Museum of the American Railroad is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that relies on private donations to support its mission. Unlike many cultural institutions, including other railroad museums across the county, the Museum of the American Railroad does not receive ongoing funding from government sources. Your generosity is the lifeblood of the Museum.

On this page, you will find several ways to support the Museum. You can earmark your donation for operations support, the capital campaign to build out the Frisco site, the exhibit track challenge campaign, or the restoration of the historic Santa Fe Alco PA locomotive. Please contact the Museum if you would like to support a passion not featured on this page.

Thank you for making everything we do possible.
