Amtrak Train Days at the California State Railroad Museum

Amtrak Train Days

All aboard for railroad fun! On Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7, ride the Capitol Corridor to the California State Railroad Museum to celebrate Amtrak Train Days. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., enjoy FREE admission to the museum and explore the exhibit train to learn about the Amtrak’s past, present, and future.

Climb aboard a double-decker California car or explore “Reasons to Ride,” the dynamic Amtrak experience that allows attendees to see, hear, and feel the benefits of train travel through interactive elements and informative graphics. For the youngest rail fans, stop off at Chuggington Kids Depot, featuring toy trains and coloring tables. Top off the day by exploring Old Town Sacramento; there’s something that’s bound to strike a chord for everyone!

Additionally, you can save on travel to the Railroad Museum this weekend with our Take 5 offer for small groups. With the purchase of one full fare adult ticket, you can bring up to five other people for only $5 per person each way. Tickets must be booked at least one day in advance of your travel, so book now in preparation for Amtrak Train Days!
