Although the museum building is owned by the Town of Chatham, the museum is managed by the Chatham Railroad Museum Group with many members having backgrounds in the American railroad industry. Members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen and act as trustees, coordinating the 50 volunteers who serve as museum docents during the summer season.
