Our Lives Are Made of
Railroad Stories

The California State Railroad Museum — your Museum — is the keeper of stories. Together, we collect them, we preserve them, and we tell them.

Your Support Is Critical To Our Success

There is no doubt our region is reeling from the uncertainty that’s resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. But nothing can change our region’s giving spirit. Acts of generosity strengthen us, lift our neighbors and sustain our community.

Help us protect our future by supporting the history of Sacramento’s treasure, the biggest draw for visitors in our region, The California State Railroad Museum. All of the businesses in the community are raised if we are successful. People come from all over the world to visit our museum and ride our trains along the Sacramento River.

We want to be ready to celebrate as a community as soon as this pandemic has subsided. Every. Gift. Counts. Now more than ever, our community deserves a reason to feel good. With your help, we will be ready. Please give whatever you can today.
