One Review of “Colorado Railroad Museum”

  1. Christina April 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm #

    Our boys love to walk around outside and explore all the different engines and trains. Some we can climb into! Go on a Steam Up day to ride a train around the yard.


Anytime Activity Ideas:

Locomotives, a roundhouse, railroad equipment, a library, and a museum are all wonderful to explore. See real equipment and locomotives outside, then view the exhibits inside.

We have a large picnic area on the grounds and invite our guests to bring food and beverages to the museum. We are an alcohol-free location.

Sorry, no pets are allowed.
