Spring Break: Model Railroads

March 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


Enjoy hands-on activities, conversations with model railroad experts, demonstrations and “make and take crafts” – all themed around model railroading!

Guests are invited to participate in our daily “pop up” exhibit by bringing in your own rail car, filling out an “exhibit” label and placing it “on display” for the day. Model rail cars from the Museum’s permanent collection will also be on display in the library.

Each day features a guest model-maker focusing on a special type of model train:
– Wednesday: “Hands-On” Layout with Denver Garden Railway Society Volunteer Joe Foss and Live steam at the Denver Garden Railway with Volunteer Sam Kunugi

Members from the Museum’s on-site model railroads, the Denver Garden Railway Society and the Denver HO Model Railroad Club will operate their layouts select days throughout the week.

Join us as we explore all things model railroads at this special program for families during spring break week!

Admission: Museum Members and Children under 2 are free, Children $5, Adults $10, and Seniors $8.

Thanks to our sponsor, make sure to stop by their display:

Our sponsor, Caboose will be operating a satellite store during this special week so you can add to (or start) your own collection!
