This site is designed to aid member museums and others interested in railway preservation.

Railways played a key role in the development of communities across the United States and Canada. Railway museums large and small across North America interpret this exciting and pivotal history. And the Association of Railway Museums helps these museums exchange information with each other and improve professional standards.

ADVOCACY NEWS

 

    AAM Advocacy Day February 27-28, 2012, Washington, DC. 

Because ARM is a "co-convenor" of this important event with the American Association of Museums, all ARM members receive free registration. When you register, use the code ARM20112.

  This year more than ever it is important for ARM to have a good contingent at Museums Advocacy Day. Just last week the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee passed the Transportation Reauthorization Bill, eliminating funding for transportation museums.  This has been a source of funding in the past that many railway museums have used to enhance their offering to the public and to support quality of life in their communities.  We need to speak up for Railway Museums!

  Please visit the AAM web site to find registration and housing information and to learn more about how Museums Advocacy Day works.  This is your chance to advocate for your museum and for fellow members of your association!
