Heritage Center Main Museum entrance

The Main Museum of the Heritage Center has many displays to educate visitors about the history of the Fallbrook area on a wide range of subjects, including local artifacts of the early Indian civilizations, the glorious Mexican Era, and the first white settlers of Fallbrook.

The railroad played an important role in the Fallbrook story and is represented in the museum as the featured centerpiece with a working model train surrounded by authentic replicas of twelve historic buildings of early Fallbrook. There is also a dedicated section of the main museum dedicated to railroad history in Fallbrook.
