Located in Griffith Park, Travel Town Museum preserves and promotes the legacy of how railroading shaped the history of Southern California and the Western United States. Opened in 1952, the museum features many rolling stock on display including locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars and cabooses, interurbans and motorcars. The museum also has a miniature train which can be ridden and goes around the perimeter of the museum. Visitors are also allowed to tour passenger cars and invited to volunteer.
