  • We visited this museum the day after their "members day" and it was very quiet and peaceful. Our ride on the 1913 electric train was delightful since we were the only passengers. Our conductor and lin...  read more »

  • All the people involved in this museum were so friendly and very informative. A great way to spend a few hours. The ride on the railcar is not too long, so the kids wont get bored. The scenery is nice...  read more »
  • Super friendly staff. Let me use their bathroom on a day they were closed. Got a quick glimpse of the inside, will definitely go back if I'm passing through that area again
  • cool museum if you like trains and history. cool to me, as a east coaster
  • It was well worth the price of admission. For a low price we had very informative volunteers telling us about the past and the price included the rides, what a deal!
  • I went today, May 23, 2015, with my brother and my 98 year old disabled father to the WRM with the intention of taking the 12:30 pm trolley ride. We didn't get to go: Two issues: Evidently every 1st or 4th Saturday, there is maintenance work done on the tracks, so the ride is only 1/2 hr as opposed to the normal 50 minutes. This information is not posted on the website. Second: Though there is a HUGE large area where a couple of cars were parked, in a lot behind the Museum and thus much closer to the actual train, the people running the place, would not accommodate a 98 year old man, by allowing us to park our car with disabled placard in that space, making it extremely difficult for us to be able to get him to the train. Therefore, we were highly disappointed, and did not take the train ride, having driven the 60 miles from Richmond, CA. Surely such an entity can be more accommodating to the Disabled, and more informative on it's website.
  • The last time I was at the Western Railway Museum was 30 years ago. I was impressed by their progress in developing the visitor center and library facility. The train ride is very nice on a well-maintained rail line. Having a building developed for the conservation of their collected rail equipment is certainly a help. The volunteer staff is very good at making visitors feel welcome. Too many railroad "museums" do not develop their facilities or train volunteers well. These folks have generally done a fine job.
