Opening Day of the Burlingame/Hillsborough Train Station Museum

Opening day of the Burlingame Hillsborough History Museum

Visit the Burlingame Hillsborough History Museum inside the historic Burlingame Train Station, where Burlingame Avenue meets California Drive. You’ll find an eclectic collection of artifacts, displays, and exhibits that will inform and delight you no matter your age. Get a close up view of the 1908 Fire Department Chemical Wagon or touch an El Camino Bell. Come back often—there’s always something new inside.

Our vision is to present modern displays inside a century-old building. The integrity of the architecture is maintained due to the station’s status on the National Register of Historic Places.

Local cub scout troupes often stop by to explore the museum.
