Yes, we encourage you to join the California State Railroad Museum or Railtown 1897 State Historic Park to learn about upcoming events and exhibits. Members receive advance notification and advance purchase opportunities for events such as THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride as well as other great benefits (click here for more information on membership
). However, all new memberships should be purchased, or existing memberships should be renewed and active, by August 31, 2023, in order to participate in 2023 Member Advance Ticket Sales. If purchasing after the deadline, contact the Membership Department to verify presale eligibility.
Please note - membership does NOT guarantee your purchase of tickets. Members have the opportunity to purchase up to 12 individual tickets or 3 tables of four per member household during Member Advance Ticket Sales. Available tickets are limited and sell out very quickly.
