Looking back…

We spent the summer of 2008 exploring California. One interesting thing about California is the railroad history. Now, who doesn’t love trains? We enjoyed visiting the different depots and train-related attractions. Our favorite was the California State Railroad Museum. It is definitely the largest train museum we’ve ever visited. The museum is located in Old Sacramento or “Old Sac”. This area contains many historic buildings and even wooden boardwalks. It really is hard to imagine you are in a state capital. If you find yourself in Sacramento you should plan to spend a day in Old Sac and visit the train museum.

If you find yourself in Southern Alabama… maybe heading to Florida… along Highway 231 between Montgomery and Dothan, you definitely need to stop at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama.

This museum has over 18,000 artifacts and over twenty buildings on display – including a covered bridge!  The museum covers Alabama history – from the Southeastern Native Americans to early pioneers to the Victorian era to WWI. The main gallery area is themed and everything is labeled.  The museum also has several wonderful murals, including “The Crossing”, that is a must see! A wonderful museum for learning about the past.

And an additional treat is the Moon Tree. The seeds of this Loblolly pine tree actually traveled to the Moon and back on Apollo 14 in 1971! How cool is that? ;)

The museum is only $6 for adults and $5 for seniors.  They are open five days a week and have adequate parking. For more information, visit their website at: http://www.pioneer-museum.org/
