  • The Truckee Railway museum is unquestionably the smallest museum I have seen anywhere. It’s an converted old rail carriage.

  • So convenient you must see it. It is very small but interesting. The museum is free but they happily accept donation. Hours appear to be seasonal so check to see when it is open.

  • One of the three museums in quaint Truckee, the rail road museum showcases history of rail road construction assisted by Chinese workers in Truckee in the nineteenth century. It is inside a small model train carriage near Truckee visitor center. Typically, visitors are welcomed and debriefed by friendly denizens of Truckee who are happy to talk about their town to guests visiting from far away. It takes only a few minutes to visit the rail road museum and you can then head out to the nearby Truckee Jail and Immigrant museums. Ample paid parking is available 24*7.
  • Good historical information to help you get a feel for the area. Information center same building.
