Dedicated to the proud era of the steam engine, complete authenticity is the hallmark of the Museum. On display is a Southern Pacific Railroad Steam Locomotive (1902-1960) and Tender. Nearby stand a 1910 Union Pacific Caboose and a modern all-steel Santa Fe caboose.

    I love Lomita's historical elements, this is definitely my favorite. This tiny museum is a treasure trove of Victorian/railroad memorabilia. It was built as a copy of Boston & Maine's Greenwood Station at Wakefield, Massachusetts. You can walk into retired railroad cars and examine them at your leisure.

    Sound lame? Hardly. The attention to detail and artistry of these pieces is unbelievable. Also found in the museum: Old signs and photographs from the railroad's heyday on the west coast. As I recall, employees are extremely knowledgeable on the...Read More

This is an attraction for all ages. Since this is a hands-on museum, children can spend hours exploring it. If your teen is interested in anthropology, architecture, heritage, history, independent businesses, nonprofit work, technology, etc, this is a great place to take them.

Photographers will love it, too--some of the angles and effects one can produce inside the old cars are unique challenges.

I can't believe how inexpensive it is, either--$4.00 for adults and $2.00 for children under 12. Not to be missed!
