We love when groups choose the B&O as their volunteer service site!
There is strength in numbers, and we could always use a few extra hands.
Typically, group projects involve:
- Large clean-up projects (trash clean-up along the tracks, or deep cleaning our passenger train, for example)
- Setting up for big events like our annual Day Out with Thomas or Polar Express
- Moving items in our archive collection to an updated storage area
- Distributing flyers around the city
We make sure that all our volunteer groups get a chance to explore the museum, hop on a train ride (when available), and leave with a pair of tickets as a thank you. Group service projects are often subject to the weather. In the event of rain, it may be necessary to reschedule depending on the project planned.
