PRS operates the Pacific Railroad Museum in the former Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe depot in San Dimas, California.  Our goal is to restore the depot to represent a working railroad station.  Artifacts and exhibits on various aspects of railroading are on display there.

The depot also houses our extensive railroad research library containing books, documents, maps and photographs collected since the 1930s.  This facility is open to the public and staffed by PRS volunteers

The PRS Museum and Library is located 10 miles east of Pasadena.  From the 210 Freeway travel south on the 57 

Freeway and exit at Arrow Highway.  Turn left on Arrow Highway under the freeway to Bonita Ave.  Turn left onto Bonita.  

Proceed on Bonita past the BNSF Railroad crossing.  The PRS Museum and Library is immediately on your right.  Traveling north on the 57 Freeway,  take the Arrow Highway exit.  Continue straight across Arrow Highway onto Bonita Ave. and continue past the BNSF Railroad crossing.  The PRS Museum and Library is immediately on your right.
