Pa. Museum Breaks Ground on Visitor Center

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum has broken ground on a 21,000-square-foot welcome and education center.

The center is being build as part of the museum’s On Track for the Future campaign to expand its east campus to increase programs and events.

Located in Washington, Pennsylvania, the welcome center is expected open in about a year.

It will have interactive exhibits, classrooms and event room, a ticket office, offices, and a store for the museum, which has 50 trolley cars on display.

The On Track campaign has raised more than $14 million, including a $5 million grant from the Allegheny Foundation and $2.5 million from Pennsylvania’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

Efforts are underway by the museum to raise an additional $1 million to be used for the new center.
