Make a Donation

Want to make a difference and help preserve railroad history in West Virginia? Consider making a donation to the West Virginia Railroad Museum.

Cash donations help cover the costs of acquiring and restoring the equipment that will make up the heart of the museum, as well as general operating expenses. Donations can be made in cash, by check, or on a credit card.

We collect and care for artifacts and manuscripts that tell the story of railroading in West Virginia and significant events in the history of rail travel. Help to build the West Virginia Railroad Museum’s collection by getting those dusty relics out of your attic!

Donations of cash or objects are generally tax deductible. However, an appraisal should be conducted before donation to ensure accurate valuation.
