“Worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We travelled from England and made sure we paid a visit to this place before we picked up the California Zephyr over the Rockies! Gives you a real insight into the challenges they faced to build the railroad and the stock they have in there was amazing and well presented!

“A great train museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This place was awsome! A definate place to visit while in Sacramento. It is not just for kids. It had everything from many old train engines, to a whole floor of toy trains and set ups. The train car displays brought back many memories. A must see!

“If you like choo choos, you'll love this!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a great place if you love trains....and even if you don't. The museum is set up to be interactive. You get to touch and enter many trains. The volunteers there are wonderful. They're all very knowledgable regarding the history of railroads and trains.

Just cool to see once but I have had to go there so many times it almost puts me to sleep now. Nothing new to ever see in here.
