Be a Volunteer - We need your help!


The Gold Coast Railroad Museum hosts many events throughout the year and is always looking for help!

Volunteers ages 13 and up can assist around the museum with tasks such as model train building, managing play areas, helping at stations around events such as tattoos, coloring, and arts & crafts, and much much more. 


Do you have a particular skill or talent?

We are always looking for mechanics, artists, historians, and anyone in between! There is alot that goes into maintaining a museum of our scale, and the help from our volunteers makes it easier for us to bring all of the amazing history and family fun to our muesum guests.

We are no longer accepting volunteer applications for Summer 2021. Please check back in the Fall.
