Receiving an unexpected gift in the mail is exciting! We give hearty thanks to Jon and Lisa Maxton for donating photographs from the early 1900s of workers in the East St. Louis railroad yards to the Museum’s Archives. The Museum of Transportation’s photograph collections contain a large number of images from local and national railroads. If you are interested in using the Archives contact the Curator at (314) 821-1190 to schedule an appointment.
The generosity of the public provides many of the artifacts used by the museum to create and continually enhance its many exhibits. If you would like to discuss donating an item(s) to the museum, please contact the Curator at (314) 821-1190, Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., or by email at [email protected]
