Transit Museums, North America
San Jose History Park (Kelly Park)

This is a hidden treasure in the Silicon Valley. This museum has a wonderful collection of historic and re-created buildings of the San Jose Area. It even has a replica of the old "Light Tower" albeit it at half scale. A nice addition is the short trolley line that runs through the park along with a great restoration shop.
