Built from 1863, the Santa Clara rail depot has seen over a century of railroad history - and, since it now stores the South Bay Historic Railroad Museum, you can see that history inside as well. It's open late each Tuesday, so go along and explore architecture and artefacts from railroad operations - from rail coaches to historic headlights - and discover the history of rail travel in the Bay Area.
