Q&A with the Gift-Shop Manager
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Our kid-friendly staff provides wooden engines for our museum visitors to borrow while they play and learn at the Museum. Located in beautiful Griffith Park, the Museum is a great escape where the kids can play, the parents can relax, and admission is free.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Watching the Museum visitors pretend and play on the painted railroad track in front of our store.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our store is run by the 501(c)(3) non-profit group which provides tours for school groups during the week, restores and operates the big trains on the weekends, and provides a service-learning program for high school students and other adults who give tours on the weekends. We are part of the Presidential Service Awards—and our volunteers provided over 6,000 individuals tours last year.
