Museums

The Western Railway Museum is a train museum, with a wealth of railroad items and some cars and engines going back as far as rail in this area. Fairfield and Suisun City were at a railway hub going back to the 19th Century.

The Travis Air Force Base Heritage Center exhibits the history of the base and Air Force, with exhibits and example aircraft, on base. The Jimmy Doolittle Center is an air and space museum, at the Nut Tree (a development in Vacaville), with a mixture of aviation science and technology.

Benicia is a small city of around 28,000 about 35 minutes south of base with two interesting museums. The Benicia Historical Museum is a local history museum on the grounds of the former Benicia Arsenal, including the US Army stables for pack camels (yes) and storage of a typically large amount of munitions. Today, one of the tenants is the museum, which displays items and exhibits on various local history subjects. The city itself was the state capital for a period in the 19th Century. The Benicia Fire Museum has no camels, but it does have antique fire equipment, including some very old fashioned fire trucks, and fire fighting tools. Benicia has the oldest fire department in California, dating to before the Civil War, and a fairly large collection of equipment for a small city.

The Rio Vista Museum is a local history museum with preserved or restored carriages and cars, period clothing displays, and a variety of household items from the history of central California.
