TypeAttraction
CategoryMuseum
DescriptionLocated at Old Sacramento State Historic Park, the California State Railroad Museum is widely regarded as North America’s finest and most-visited railroad museum. Featuring changing exhibits, special events, steam train rides (weekends April-September), historic structures from the Gold Rush era and more, the California State Railroad Museum truly has something for everyone! Experience the magic of railroading, and find out how trains have shaped our lives, economy, and culture here in the Golden State. Marvel at lavishly restored 19th century trains. Touch a million-pound steam locomotive. Climb aboard a gently-swaying sleeping car. Peer into a plush, private railroad car and inspect gorgeous railroad china aboard a streamlined dining car. Step into the waiting room of a 19th century train depot. Become a child again at our fantastic Toy Train exhibit, North America's most comprehensive. This must-see attraction is ideal for families and groups!
