Special Events For The Whole Family
Our family memberships are one of the best deals going for affordable family entertainment. We've been busy planning a variety of special events of all kinds. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy in our shady 2 acre park and enjoy the festivities. As always, admission tickets are good for rides all day on our historic electric interurban trains and streetcars.
Summer 2016 Fundraising Appeal: Your Support Goes A Long Way
Our summer campaign is seeking to raise funds for two great causes: First, substantial repairs to our 96-year-old Birney safety car, Sacramento Northern #62 - a very popular car with museum visitors that has been out of service for several years. Further, we hope to raise $15,000 to complement donated irrigation equipment for the museum's 2-acre Laflin Park. Your gift of any amount will be applied to the project of your choice, and is fully tax deductible. For more information, click here to download our Summer 2016 Campaign flyer, including a detailed history of the Birney car.
