The Lomita Railroad Museum is a museum in Lomita, California devoted to California railroad history during the steam era.

It was founded by Irene Lewis in the early 1960s on a single lot in the middle of a residential part of Lomita, and had its grand opening on June 23, 1967. The museum building is a replica of a 19th-century depot, Boston & Maine's Greenwood Station that once stood in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and there is a full size replica of a water tower. The museum grounds now function as a small public park.

  • Beautiful experience, never knew this was here until I drove by it one day. Worth the visit. Amazing gift shop.
  • We go to the grass area for Sportsball on Saturdays in Spring. The museum people let us in to go potty, very nice environment. Everyone is always helpful and friendly.
