Volunteer at the B&O!
We are currently seeking volunteers who are passionate about sharing the stories of American railroading, enthusiastic about historic preservation and interpretation, and enjoy working with others.
We ask that our volunteers be able to give a minimum of (1) 6-hour shift per month for 1 year. Typically, volunteers at the Museum work a weekly shift.
- FREE Family & Friends Museum Membership

- Periodic behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at upcoming exhibits and collection items not currently available to the public
- Professional development & experience
- Opportunity to take on more responsibility as a Senior Volunteer (excellent resumé builder for aspiring museum professionals)
- Most importantly — lots of smiling, engaged, and happy visitors!
