Staff and Board

The mission of the Colorado Railroad Museum is to preserve and convey the rich history of railroading in the Rocky Mountain region through acquisition, research, exhibition, and education.


Quality customer service is a key value and expectation in the Museum. Employees shall treat all members of the public with courtesy, respect and consideration, regardless of how difficult the circumstances. The Museum makes every effort to be receptive to visitor comments and concerns and to provide any reasonable amount of information or explanation upon request. All employees are deemed to be “ambassadors” of the Museum and should conduct themselves accordingly. When dealing with any complaint, employees shall remember that the matter is important to the complainant and it deserves a prompt and courteous response, regardless of the employee’s opinion of its merits.
