What is there to do?

All aboard, we're off to Travel Town Museum in Los Angeles! This outdoor museum  preserves and celebrates the railroad heritage of the western United States, and tells it's history through tours and artifacts!

It's a pretty fascinating history kids, so get ready to spend the day learning some fun facts, and a particular emphasis is placed on the history of Southern California and how the railroads aided its development, so just imagine what there is to learn?

A great way to learn about the history of the railroad is through the docent tours that the museum offer. Kids, this is the perfect opportunity to ask questions too.

Of course, why would a train museum be without a ride on an actual train?  Travel Town Museum offer train rides through the Griffith Park Train Rides company, and for a small additional fee, kids can pretend to be a conductor as you make your way around the beautiful landscapes!
