Welcome title



The Travel Town Museum Foundation is working hard to bring a new Gift Shop Building into the Museum, with the intention of rehabilitating the old building (pictured above) into a Volunteer Center complete with a research library for all our hard-working, dedicated volunteers. But right now, there is a real need to replace the handicapped-accessible ramp and porch on the current gift shop. A new ADA compliant all-access ramp will make the current Gift Shop and future Center/library available to everyone. The ramp will be made of durable, composite material making it sustainable for years. The volunteers who give so much to the Museum and the City of Los Angeles will be able to conduct research to enhance the free public Tours, improve their restoration efforts on the beautiful train cars, and enrich the museum experience for all. Please help us reach our goal by giving what you can today to help make a difference in the lives of many.

The mission of the Foundation is to educate the public about railroad history as it pertains to the development of the Southwest Region of the United States, particularly the Los Angeles area. We fulfill this mission by supporting the restoration, operation, and interpretation of the historic railroad equipment at the City-operated Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park.

The Foundation supports Travel Town by helping the Department of Recreation & Parks to fund and administer the Museum's volunteer programs, restoration projects and educational outreach efforts. Many of the Museum's programs and activities are funded through grants and donations along with proceeds from our Museum Gift Shop.

We hope you will come for a visit and experience all the Park has to offer you and your family. Become a member, volunteer, shop in the Gift Shop, take a Docent Tour, ride the train and, most of all, keep the rails alive! See you soon!
