Dinosaur Express Train

Fresh Tracks through Prehistory

Saturday July 18

Colorado railroads helped unearth many fossils as railroad tracks were laid. Construction crews often exposed these unusual and fascinating bones as they were digging and laying railroad ties.

Trains were then used to transport these ‘stone bones’ to museums around Colorado and throughout the United States.

Ride and discover the Dinosaur Express Train on Saturday, July 18 at the Colorado Railroad Museum. Train rides depart every 30 minutes from 10:00AM to 4:00PM and admission includes unlimited rides.

Make fresh tracks through prehistory as children sift through sand for fossils, pan for fools gold, paint dinosaur footprints and enjoy other prehistoric activities. Be greeted by multiple dinosaurs whose skeletons have been found all along the Front Range. Follow the dinosaur tracks around the Museum’s 15-acre railyard and listen to the adventurous stories of these prehistoric reptiles during our dinosaur story time.

Dinosaur Express Train is in collaboration with the Morrison Natural History Museum, Dinosaur Ridge and Dinosaur Brokers.

Museum Members and children under 2 are free, $5 for children (2-15), $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (over 60).
