Railroad museum hires programs manager

By From page A3 | March 01, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Kristina March in coming months will be working on ways to take Western Railway Museum educational programs to a new level.

The Woodland resident has become the museum’s first full-time public programs manager. The museum focuses on electric trains and is located at 5848 Highway 12 between Suisun City and Rio Vista.

“We have made an organization-wide commitment to improve the level and type of education we provide for all our visitors, from preschools to students to adults to seniors,” museum Board of Directors Chairman John Coleman said in a press release.

March has a master’s degree in museum studies from San Francisco State University. She has teaching experience in Fairfield and Esparto classrooms. She applied for the position because it combines two of her passions: public education and museums, the press release said.

“We’re especially strong in the areas of history, energy and transportation, but we also touch on the natural history of our area and on what it means to have respect for the shared environment,” March said in the release. “We try to do it all in an age-appropriate way, with different activities for toddlers than for adults.”

The Western Railway Museum is open from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It will also be open and running historic trains on Wednesdays in April as part of the Scenic Limited special trains. For more information, visit www.wrm.org or call 374-2978.
