Tour Guide - Interurban Railway Museum

Are you an enthusiastic individual who enjoys interacting with diverse groups of all ages? Volunteering as a Tour Guide at the Interurban Railway Museum might be right for you!



Tour Guides greet scheduled groups and walk-ins, keep accurate visitor records and educate on museum artifacts and history. Ideal for cheerful, proactive individuals with a passion for customer service. Interest in trains, engineering or Plano history is a plus, but not a requirement. Learning about the museum is included in volunteer training. The most important requirement is interest in engaging and educating visitors of all ages.

The Interurban Railway Museum is a FREE history museum located in Downtown Plano. It features interactive exhibits on electricity, science, the City of Plano and the Texas Electric Railway. The Museum offers walk-in, group and school tours. The Museum is open Tuesday - Thursday from 11 AM - 4 PM, Friday 10:30 - 4 PM, and Saturday from 1 - 5 PM.
