We really enjoyed this museum and spent almost two hours there. A lot of information and very well designed. The volunteers were very helpful.

“Who knew railroad history could be so much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

First we thought: What could be so great about the railway museum in Sacramento that makes it the number one thing to do? But it really was very cool. Even my wife, who is not very interested in this kind of thing, was very fond of this place. Everything was well maintained and made with love for detail. This is a great museum for young and old.
