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 the street for a very enjoyable day.

This is a very nice spot to visit, especially if you are in the South Bay area of LA County. Take a sack lunch and make it a fun stop on your itinerary. Stop at King's Hawaiian in Torrance on the way home.

Haven't been here in years, it's not huge so it won't take up you whole day to see every thing. If like steam engines this is the local place to visit.
