Golden State Model Railroad Museum, which closed for annual construction, maintenance and improvement in December, reopened Sunday.

Trains will continue to run Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. at the 10,000 square foot museum located at 900-A Dornan Drive in Point Richmond. The price of admission is $5 for adults and children 12 and over, $3 for younger children and seniors and $10 for families. Annual passes are also available at $49 for families and $29 for adults.

The museum is also open Saturdays for viewing but no trains run during this time, and admission is free.

The museum operates highly-detailed train models on three large layouts, which “represent prototypical scenery in Northern and Central California.” Both freight and passenger trains typical of the steam era through modern day diesels are featured at the museum.
