Educational Group Visits

The Western Railway Museum welcomes school group visits throughout the year. The fee to bring your group varies depending on the size of your group and when you wish to visit. The Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 AM - 5:00 PM throughout the year, and select weekdays during the Summer. 

All Field Trips include the following activities

  • An information packet full of facts about our historic electric rail cars, and teaching tools in the form of educational games and puzzles, as well as grade-appropriate social history.
  • Learning about the importance of electric railroads.
  • An 11-mile round trip ride on an authentic restored historic electric rail car.
  • A guided Carhouse tour of our special collection of locomotives

A field trip to the Western Railway Museum can help students and teachers address many California State Curriculum Standards, especially in grades K-5.
