Small little museum with 3 train cars to climb into. 4 and 7 year olds enjoyed themselves, but because it’s so small, it left them wanting to see more.

Don't be surprised if you spend more time here than you expected to. The engine and train cars are fun to walk through, but the collections inside are excellent. Only a fraction of their material is on display at any one time. Watch for their...More

I have taken small children to the museum and they have had a great time. It is a small town, cozy museum that will likely entertain tykes for an hour or 2.

A small very well arranged Museum off the beaten path. A young volunteer gave us a tour with great enthusiasm and pride. If you like RR history this a treasure trove of local info. A nice place for a break between San Diego and LAX.
