September 2019 Activity: Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum

Join our president Steve Cirone for our September 2019 photo activity: we visit the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum (AGSEM) in Vista. The museum features far more than just antique gas & steam engines – the exhibits also include barns, blacksmith & wheelwright shops, metal arts facility, a model railroad, and more. You can find the full list of exhibits on their website (engines may not run at all times but most exhibits are open on Saturdays, which is the day we’ll go).

Because guess what, that’s the theme for the September photo quest! 🙂
