I have taken small children to the museum and they have had a great time. It is a small town, cozy museum that will likely entertain tykes for an hour or 2.

A small very well arranged Museum off the beaten path. A young volunteer gave us a tour with great enthusiasm and pride. If you like RR history this a treasure trove of local info. A nice place for a break between San Diego and LAX.

This Museum is a fun place to take children to explore. Children can climb into the trains, watch railroad videos, and play with the train table! I hope you have a chuga-chuga-choo-choo time! :)

I live not too far away from this neighborhood museum so I thought it time to visit. I went for a walk and decided to walk through. What a neat time I had! Some nice hands on stuff... A bygone era...

I was suprised at how much my kids enjoyed the novelty of sitting in a stationary train car and reading books. The size is just right for a place to stop when you have a few minutes to spare with the kids.

In Lomita we have an actual railroad station which was used and reconstructed, you can almost hear the going on (if your imagination is good enough) The engine is wonderful as well as the caboose. Bring a lunch with you and enter the park across...More
