Railroad Museum Gets in the Jazzy Spirit Memorial Day Weekend!
Coinciding with the 39th Annual Sacramento Music Festival happening over Memorial Day weekend in Old Sacramento, the California State Railroad Museum will offer jazz musicians performing inside the Museum, aboard popular weekend excursion train rides and even complimentary admission to event badge holders. With several music venues located in close proximity to the Railroad Museum and a special free Children’s Stage and activity area just outside the Museum in the “1849 Scene,” a visit to the Railroad Museum extends the weekend enjoyment for all ages.
Inside the Museum, visitors will be treated to live entertainment in the Roundhouse performed by various banjo musicians all four days as follows: Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, live musical performances will be available in the Museum Theater on Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. each day. And, guests who choose to take a lovely six-mile, 40-minute round trip excursion train ride along the levees of the Sacramento River will also be entertained on board by talented banjo performers from the Sacramento Banjo Band.
Weekend excursion train rides will be offered on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the holiday weekend (May 26-28). Trains depart hourly from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days from the Central Pacific Railroad Freight Depot in Old Sacramento (located on Front Street between J and K Streets). The train features a combination of vintage closed coaches with comfortable seats, and open-air gondolas with bench style seating.
