California Train Museum in Sacramento, CA

Located next to Old Sacramento, and walking distance from the Amtrak station, is the California Train Museum.  This place is fantastic - a must-see for train-lovers young and old.  The place is enormous, and holds a large number of vintage train cars.  Steam engines.  A diesel.  A mail car from the era of mail delivery by train.  A sleeping car.  A dining car.  A caboose.  An exhibit about the Pullman labor riots over a century ago.  And exhibits featuring hundreds of model trains.

Recommended child friendly hotel near the train museum that is also walking distance:
Embassy Suites Hotel, Old Sacramento
This place is wonderful, as you can take the train to Sacramento and walk to the Crocker Museum, the Train Museum, dining, Hornblower boat ride, and the Embassy Suites, all car free!
