It’s Colorado Gives Day! Join thousands of Coloradans to support local nonprofits on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. This annual statewide movement celebrates and increases philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. The $1.5 Million Incentive Fund made possible by Community First Foundation, FirstBank and other community members boosts the value of every donation. Make your donations right here on on Dec. 8 or schedule in advance.

At the Colorado Railroad Museum we combine science, history, and creative activities to tell the story of how railroads opened the American West to exploration and commerce. Your support on Colorado Gives Day will help us continue to offer exhibits, programming and restorations that bring history to life!

Help us Raise the Roofs!

The Colorado Railroad Museum is in desperate need of a new roof for our primary restoration facility, the Roundhouse. Completed some 30 years ago, the Roundhouse complex serves as maintenance base for our operating steam locomotives and is home to our large-scale restoration efforts. A functional roof that will stand up to our changing Colorado weather is an absolute necessity! Additionally, funding for a trainshed-style roof—to protect 1886-vintage Chicago, Burlington & Quincy business car No. 96 and 1887-vintage Colorado Midland observation car No. 111—is still $25,000 short of the goal needed to begin work. Please help us “Raise the Roofs” and keep Colorado railroad history On Track!
