The Lomita Railroad Museum is a museum in Lomita, California devoted to California railroad history during the steam era.

It was founded by Irene Lewis in the early 1960s on a single lot in the middle of a residential part of Lomita, and opened in 1966; the museum building is a replica of a 19th-century depot that once stood in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and there is a full size replica of a water tower. The museum grounds now function as a small public park.
