Southwest
Museum

has a single island platform for the gold line built into the side of the hill. This island platform has a single long canopy for its eastern half where the exit ramp is down to a grade crossing. The western half has lampposts designed to resemble trees. The platform is interspersed with victorian artifacts like pillars and dice, part of Highland Park Gateway by Paul Polubinskas completing Teddy Sandoval initial concept who died in 1995. Passengers can sit and wait for trains in attractive decorative iron chairs. To exit the station from the pedestrian grade crossing is a short ramp and staircase to the north up to Marmion Way across from Museum Drive's intersection and a longer ramp and staircase down south of the station to Woodside Drive.
