The California State Railroad Museum is a large, indoor exhibition of CA's rail history, occasionally there are exhibits outside as well. Covering three interior levels it's also a great escape from the sun outside - though being a very large space, the a/c has difficulty keeping up on really warm / hot days when there are a lot of visitors inside (beats 97* outdoors though ....) From the earliest days through current times locomotives and cars are on display, many you can climb on and in. One floor houses a vast display of model trains. Restrooms and elevators are available inside.

This place is timeless and always enjoyable. The little ones love it as the old folks. We had a picnic outside and walked around Old town to visit the candy shop.

Great train museum, tells the story of the Transcontinental Railroad and had lots of trains to go on board and explore. Worth a visit for train buffs

A wonderful place to visit even if you are not a train fanatic. Spacious, well-laid-out, the exhibits are fun to experience. Located in the historic (though touristy) part of town, easily accessible. The children especially seemed to enjoy it.
