Travel Town Museum Foundation

Due Date: 2027-01-28T21:00:00.000Z
Our mission is to educate the public about railroad history as it pertains to the development of the Southwest Region of the United States, particularly the Los Angeles area. We are the non-profit “friends” group for Travel Town, working in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation & Parks – which owns and operates the Griffith Park facility. Our organization was incorporated in 1982 under the official name American Southwestern Railway Association, Inc. Depending on your skills and availability, you can work with or for Project managers on the restoration of historic passenger cars and locomotives at our Museum. We would love for you to prove your reliability, responsibility and leadership abilities with us to take on restoration projects at the Museum that prolong and extend the life of these Museum Pieces, while keeping as historically accurate as possible. You will be working with other Museum volunteers, sometimes in a leadership role, if you are able to manage other people. Projects can be range from replacing a wheel on a cart to replacing a stair mechanism in a vestibule, from changing light bulbs to replacing an diesel engine on a locomotive. If you are willing to learn and continue serving the Museum, we are willing to train you, as well. Below are examples of the great volunteer activities that the Foundation supports at Travel Town!
