There are many museums devoted to the technology of railroading, but the Railroaders Memorial Museum tells the story of the men and women of the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR). Here you’ll experience Altoona at the height of industrial America. Located in the former Pennsylvania Railroad Master Mechanics building, this hightech interpretive facility guides visitors through a firsthand experience of life in a booming railroad town. A film about the men and women of the PRR is also featured and included in the admission price. The Railroaders Memorial Museum displays the state’s official steam locomotive, the K–4 1361, the last working model of its kind. The museum is across from the Amtrak station, so real fanatics can come by train, see the trains, and go home by train. After your visit, stop by the adjacent Boyer Candy and browse through the specialty shops in the historic downtown business district.
