  • Awesome place... definitely hidden gem. Great for families and little kids. Great for photoshoot and picnic. Free!!! What’s free in LA? I highly recommend this place, especially if you have little kids who love trains, or if you love trains!

  • interesting place to stop. Definitely had some cool trains and cars and Etc. The bathrooms are pretty crummy though, definitely need to be cleaned up. The staff for kind and have a smile, which is surprising considering the job itself seems like it kind of sucks. the state of some of the exhibits is a little crappy. I wish some of the exhibits especially the wooden ones could be treated with a little bit more respect considering they're going to degrade a lot faster then the steel and metal ones.

  • My 2 year old is really into trains, so this was a great place to take him. There were multiple decommissioned steam trains on tracks and also some sample train cars. He got to connect all of trains that he has seen in books, videos, and toys to the real things.

  • Travel Town has the largest collection of vintage steam locomotives in Southern California. Unfortunately. none of those engines are operational. Also on site are vintage rolling stock and automobiles of the past. Admission is free. This is a popular location for children's birthday parties. A gift shop is also on site.

  • Perfect outing for a toddler who loves trains. We did the ride and then walked around looking at all of the trains. I wish we could have gone down the street to see the steamer trains but that we were told was only open on the weekends. This was cheaper than the zoo and we didn’t feel bad when we had to leave after an hour.
