Would you like to help preserve, interpret, or communicate our railroad history? Do you have a passion for inspiring others, restoring vintage equipment, or simply want to help maintain the tracks or signals of our operating railroad? Help make a difference and volunteer with the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento State Historic Park!
Applications to become a volunteer with the California State Railroad Museum can be submitted at any time. Email [email protected] for more information.
Please note that the restoration shops and library & archives are fully staffed at this time and not able to take on more volunteers.
As demand and scheduling allows, potential volunteers will be interviewed and invited to join the volunteer program. Depending on the department that volunteers are interested in, the training schedule may vary.
For potential Museum Docents and Railroad Operations Docents, the training schedule lasts approximately 4 weeks.
For more information, contact CSRM's Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected] or (916) 445-0269.
