Railroad Museum gets in the jazzy spirit with Music Inside Museum, Aboard Trains & more

Coinciding with the 43rd annual Sacramento Music Festival happening over Memorial Day weekend in Old Sacramento, California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum will celebrate the holiday by offering jazz music inside the Railroad Museum and popular train rides behind a vintage diesel locomotive. In addition, festival badge holders will receive complimentary admission to the Railroad Museum given it is an official musical venue for the special event.

Inside the Museum, visitors will be treated to entertaining jazz musicians in the Roundhouse throughout the holiday weekend, May 27-30, 2016. And, guests who choose to take a lovely six-mile, 45-minute round trip excursion train ride along the levees of the Sacramento River will also be entertained on board by talented banjo performers from the Sacramento Banjo Band.   

Excursion train rides behind a vintage diesel locomotive will be offered Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the holiday weekend. Trains depart hourly from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. all three days from the Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot in Old Sacramento (located on Front Street between J and K Streets).

Regular admission fees apply all weekend except for Sacramento Music Festival badge holders, who will be admitted free to the Museum when they show their Festival badge. Excursion train ride tickets apply to all and cost $12 for adults, $6 for youths (ages 6-17), are free for ages 5 and under. For passengers desiring a ride aboard a first-class car, tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for youths and free for children 5 and under. Excursion train rides tickets are available to book online in advance at www.csrmf.org or in-person on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10:30 a.m. the day of the train ride at the Sacramento Southern Railroad ticket office. For more information, please call 916-323-9280.
