Please be advised that the stated address and location for the Pacific Railroad Museum is incorrect. The correct address for the Pacific Railroad Museum is 210 WEST Bonita Avenue, San Dimas, CA 91773. I trust this error will be corrected. David Housh Museum Curator

This museum doesn't have trains to look at, but it does have railroad memorabelia and a really decent research library. The docents/volunteers who run this facility are knowledgeable and helpful. This is a museum more for railroad buffs than folks who want to see trains.

The volunteer guide does such a great job with so many interesting facts about the small but so much to see museum. They have many books for sale and a libray upstairs you can visit.If you like the history of how the first rail road was built you will love this place. No fee but worth a good donation.
