The Red Car Museum
The Red Car Museum is inside a former 1925 Pacific Electric Right of Way car that is located right next to the Mary Wilson Library. The car was a repair vehicle to help fix the company's cars on the 40 mile Newport-Los Angeles line. The museum features various items on display that help tell Seal Beach's history.
