Become a B&O Volunteer! 

Be a part of Baltimore railroad history by volunteering at the B&O Railroad Museum! By joining our team, you become part of a select group of individuals dedicated to preserving and presenting American railroading history for our visitors. 

This is an exciting time to join our volunteer team. The B&O Railroad Museum has volunteer positions for all interests, abilities and skill levels. Volunteers are the backbone of our Museum operations. We rely on volunteers to greet visitors, give daily tours of our campus, conduct passenger train rides, maintain railroad track, assist in educational programming, maintain model layouts, process archival material, care for the Museum’s collection, and much more.

The Museum makes every effort to work with our volunteer’s schedules and provides flexible hours for most positions. Many openings require the volunteer to work during regular museum hours, although certain catered events and receptions are held during evening hours. Training and materials are provided. 

Apply Now! 

We provide two easy ways to apply for a volunteer position:

Forms can be mailed to B&O Railroad Museum, 901 West Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21223.

Your completed application will be forwarded to the museum’s volunteer coordinator for review. Should your skills meet our current needs and volunteer position openings, you will be contacted for an interview. At that time we will be able to learn more about your interests and begin working to place you in a position that will be both fulfilling to you and beneficial to the museum. 

Thank you again for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you!
