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.

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.
