Tour Day
Tours on the Second Saturday of the Month.

Tour Guides (Docents) lead visitors at the Museum on guided tours through passenger cars and around other railroad equipment.

Tours are given on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10:30 until 3. There is setup time before and take-down time after each event.

This is a fun way to interact with kids of all ages and practice your public speaking skills. Training and scripts are provided! Learn about the history of the equipment at Travel Town and about railroad history. Tour guides are also needed during the week for school groups. This is a great way to teach future generations about the history of Los Angeles.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Foundation is to educate the public about railroad history as it pertains to the development of the Southwest Region of the United States, particularly the Los Angeles area. We fulfill this mission by supporting the restoration, operation, and interpretation of the historic railroad equipment at the City-operated Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park.
