Fun Family Activities:

California State Railroad Museum
Twenty-one locomotives are on display, from steam engines to the 220-mph-bullet train. Hop on a sleeper, walk through the dining carriage or peek into the first class compartment to get a feel for railroad history. Seek out the half dozen train tables on the second floor. Kids can take their pick from Chuggington, Thomas or Brio sets.

California State Railroad Museum
2nd and I Streets
Old Sacramento, Ca

Hours: Open daily from 10 a.m-5 p.m and 'til 8 p.m. on Thurs. during the summer.

Aerospace Museum of California
Little ones more interested in planes than trains will get a kick out of the Aerospace Museum of California, just a short drive northeast of downtown. It houses meticulously restored aircraft like a B-14 bi-plane and a MIG-17PF, as well as a ride simulator that creates the effect of piloting everything from a WWII bomber to a more modern jet.

3200 Freedom Park Dr.
McClellan, Ca

A City Walking Tour

Sacramento History Museum
Old Sacramento, Ca
Hours: Open daily 10 a.m to 5 p.m

Old Sacramento Schoolhouse
Before you leave Old Sacramento, walk along the river and take a quick look inside the Old Schoolhouse. It's free and worth a visit if only to seek out the list of punishments dispensed in a classroom circa 1900. The steepest penalty was 10 lashes for playing cards or misbehaving with girls. Ow!

Sutter's Fort State Historic Park
Head away from the river, past the palm tree-lined Capitol buildings and over to Midtown to visit Sutter's Fort State Historic Park. The fort (which recently had its most extensive renovations since the 1890s) captures the pioneer spirit of families arriving in wagon trains at the dawn of the California Gold Rush. Check online for special living history days when actors and enthusiasts bring to life the days when John Sutter was in charge of the adobe ranch 150 years ago.
