“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

They have everything that has to do with the railroads here. Some very old and very big steam engines. They have old dinnig and sleeping cars from the 1800s and it gives you an idea of how the people dressed and traveled in those days. Most of all after you pay the admission charge it doesn't cost anything to walk around and look at all the exhibits. You could spend hours doing so. This is worth the time and money to go see. It is a window into the past.

This is definitely a great place to go. I love the Railroad Museum and usually take any company from out of town to the Railroad Museum. A must see. I never tire of going.

“A must for train buffs and children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The railroad history of California is displayed with well restored engines and cars from a bygone era. Also, of great interest to the kids is the toy train collection and the hands on area. The gift shop is well stocked but they do not validate parking so stop across the street at the Candy Store and buy $5.00 worth of good candy and get a $5.00 parking coupon.

“Great interactive museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Definitely a highlight of any trip to Sacramento. The museum contains a good number of engines from the golden age of the railways, all in immaculate condition. My kids loved seeing these machines up close - as did I. A particular highlight is the walkthrough sleeping and dining cars.
