The California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento is the world-class tribute to the role of the "iron horse" in connecting California to the rest of the nation. The museum features 21 lavishly restored locomotives and cars, some dating back to 1862. There is a full-scale diorama of an 1860s construction site high in the Sierra Nevada as well as a bridge elevated 24 feet above the museum floor.

A block from the museum is a reconstructed passenger station and freight depot circa 1867. During the summer, a steam train takes visitors from the depot to Miller Park and back along the Sacramento River.

Additional Details:
Sacramento Southern Railroad Trains depart from the Public Market in Old Sacramento located at Front & "K" Streets. Steam trains run weekends only April through September, departures on the hour 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Trains also run on Memorial Day, Labor Day and selected weekends October through December.

On-street, metered parking in Old Sacramento is for short durations only (90 minutes maximum) and the limited amount of spaces generally fill up early. Thus, we recommend instead that guests utilize the public parking garage located at the north ("I" Street) entrance to Old Sacramento.
