Explore the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, passenger and freight cars, streetcars, interurban electric cars, buildings and other artifacts dating from the 1870’s. Ride streetcars, interurban cars and trains on the museum railway. Trolleys and trains operate every weekend and on most major holidays, 11AM to 5PM.
Visit the Pinacate Station Museum Store and the Museum grounds daily (except Thanksgiving and Christmas), 9AM to 5PM. We recommend visiting on a weekend if possible, as this is when our trains and trolleys are running and most of our display buildings are open. If you’re planning to visit during the week, consider calling ahead to reserve a guided tour, available most weekday mornings for a small fee.
The Museum grounds are quite large and contain numerous buildings, parks and outdoor areas to explore. Any time you visit, we recommend dressing appropriately for the weather, and wearing comfortable walking shoes. The Museum grounds are quite large and there’s a lot to see!
