Polar Express
California State Railroad Museum


The California State Railroad Museum is back with the Polar Express! Enjoy this magical family event! The evening begins in the passenger station where you will be entertained by Polar Express characters, and then board your train to the North Pole where you will enjoy hot chocolate and a sweet treat courtesy of their hot chocolate chefs. Once you reach the North Pole, the jolly old elf — Santa himself — will come on board to give each passenger the first gift of Christmas, a silver sleigh bell.
