About California State Railroad Museum, Sacramento

The California State Railroad Museum aims to interpret and help the common people understand about the importance of the role played by the ‘iron horse’ in connecting the state of California to the rest of the nation. The museum basically has several restored railroad cars and locomotives that were once used in the past. The origin of the museum dates back to 1937 and was started by a bunch of railroad enthusiasts who very passionately wanted to highlight the importance of locomotives in Sacramento and the nation’s history.

  • It was pretty nice. I don't know if I'd say 'great'. It didn't meet my imaginary expectations of the mythical railroad museum. I say that a little facetiously. In many respects, it was really nice. I'd go again. Just something seemed to be missing. We had a better experience with the staff than some of the authors of one-star ratings did. The front desk woman was nice. Most of the docents were eager to explain their exhibits. I was expecting more diesel locomotives but it's mostly steam focused. There was one fullsized F7 diesel locomotive with the panels removed. It showed the insides of the engine with an accompanying plaque that showed what each component was. There is a large area devoted to the building of the transcontinental railroad over the Sierra Nevada mountains which was very well done. There were excellent restored passenger cars from the mid 1900's. A dining car; sleeping car; mail car. Really well done. There were also several older cars nicely restored. Much of this museum is not for young kids. They just won't have the attention span for many of the displays. There is a lot of reading. It's nicely done but young kids will probably get bored. I'd hate to be there when a school field trip was there.

  • Sacramento free museum day 02/03/2018 This is the fourth year our family has taken advantage of free museum day in Sacramento. Over all a awesome experience. Yes it was incredibly slammed with people and it was hard to even walk. The lines to the restrooms where a mile long. But still a great afternoon I will not be soon forgotten....

  • I didn't expect to actually enter the cars and see them decorated. It is the most fascinating museum from all the other that I have visited so far. My 18 month old girl had so much fun playing with the train models and toys. Unforgettable experience!

  • This is such an awesome museum! Perfect for kids and adults. My 2 year old son LOVES trains and absolutely had a blast seeing all the different trains. It is definitely worth the price of admission and parking. Then after that you get to walk old town and see the beautiful sights.

  • Went here for my husband's birthday. Lots to look at and learn about. We loved being able to climb on the trains and look inside the cars. Way bigger that it looks on the outside! The free tour was funny and informative. The movie we waited for was incredibly cheesy.
