Canberra Railway Museum



Are you interested in joining us as a volunteer?

Come and visit our New Members Open Day on Saturday 29th May, 10am-3pm!


Meet with some of our current volunteers and chat with them about what we have to offer at Canberra Railway Museum!

Take a Behind-the-scenes tour at 10:30am, 11:30am and 1:30pm, and see the many projects you could take part in!

We’ll have a free sausage sizzle for visitors!

We welcome all interested visitors aged 14 years and older. We have a good variety of opportunities; there’s something for everyone!

If you would like to come and visit, please email to register your interest!

Please note, as this is a working site, persons under the age of 14 are ineligible for volunteer work. Open-toed shoes are not permitted- we recommend hiking boots or work boots.

All aboard!
