  • Friendly staff, nice collection of rolling stock. Wish there were clearer information about what rolling stock they have and where it's located. Also wish their streetcar operation had more operational track in addition to the short, slow loop. The grounds of the museum are very nice with lots of grassy, shaded areas and places to picnic. The main station area and boarding platforms are really well done and maintained.
  • It is a little messy but it was entertaining! There was a cute old man who took us around and told us all about the trains and let us go in them. They also have this adorable gift shop and of course we ended up spending $25 because the items were just so cute and the whole experience was enjoyable. It's a really awesome historical museum that would be fun for families!,
  • A great little jewel hidden in the desert. Our guide had much knowledge and was very informative. We all truly enjoyed this place.
  • Admission on 'most' days is FREE! Train and trolley rides on weekends and some holidays. Facebook page has up to date information. Watch as volunteers bring the past back to life. Become a member and help them do it, or learn to operate them yourself. Your kids or grandkids would be impressed if you were the engineer. A great day is a picnic in their park.
  • This place is awesome. If you like old trains, railcars, or cable cars this us the place to go. You can walk on and see a part of history and its free.
