This is a very nice spot to visit, especially if you are in the South Bay area of LA County. Take a sack lunch and make it a fun stop on your itinerary. Stop at King's Hawaiian in Torrance on the way home.

This is not a large museum, but it is very enjoyable and has plenty of interesting stuff, especially for kids.

Haven't been here in years, it's not huge so it won't take up you whole day to see every thing. If like steam engines this is the local place to visit.

This was our first visit to this nice little railroad museum. It's not the big railroad museum but it is real nice. There is a steam locomotive, freight cars, hand car, two cabooses, a water tower, and a railroad station with exhibits. The price isn't too much and you can spend several hours.

I was surprised at how small it is. There is an attractive train depot that serves as a small museum and gift shop. Outside... More

This was my third visit to this small railroad museum near San Pedro. It's not the biggest railroad museum, but it has big dreams. The price isn't too much and you can spend an hour or two. There is a 2-6-0 type steam locomotive, two cabooses, two freight cars, a hand car, wagons, a water tower, and a Victorian style... More
