California Express at San Diego's Model Railroad Museum

Come ride the express to an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of San Diego's Model Railroad Museum!

On Obscura Day, take the train (or car) for a specially-curated trip inside the mini trains and railroads of San Diego's Model Railroad Museum.

We will be given an up-close look at the craftsmanship of miniature train layout creation, from buildings, to benches, to miniature people of the San Diego Arizona Eastern Railroad and the Cabrillo Southwestern Railroad.

New additions are constantly made to the layouts that began their life in the museum over 30 years ago.

**Note that there are multiple tour times at 12 PM and 1 PM.**


Advance Tickets Only. All Sales Final. No Refunds or Exchanges.

Check out our full lineup of amazing adventures taking place all around the world on Obscura Day, our annual celebration of discovery!
