The primary collection focus of the Travel Town Museum is the history of railroad transportation in the western United States from 1880 to the 1930s, with an emphasis on the development of railways in Southern California and specifically in Los Angeles. The Museum also seeks to broaden its collection to reflect the development of railroading from the advent of diesel locomotion to present day rail transportation. The memories and materials we collect are used for display to Travel Town visitors and for research by the Museum.
One of the Travel Town Museum’s priorities is to further develop and strengthen our permanent collection. Toward this end, we invite your interest in becoming a partner and a donor to the Travel Town Museum. Listed below are examples of artifacts that the Museum looks for to expand its collection.
Town Museum, additionally, wants to preserve its own story and is interested
in collecting family snapshots of visits to Travel Town, photographs
of the Museum’s historic locomotive and rolling stock collection,
and Museum souvenirs and collectibles.
