Sharing Colorado’s rich railroad heritage with guests and audiences of all ages and backgrounds is what the Colorado Railroad Museum exists to do. We’re proud of the many improvements made to our programs and facilities over the past decade. We’re also proud of the fact that we responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with resolve, welcoming audiences to enjoy the Museum safely while launching online programming for those who were unable to visit.

But we couldn’t do all of this without your support. The Museum relies on the generosity of its members and donors throughout the year. As we continue taking steps to prepare for an even brighter future, we hope that you’ll join with us. Your contributions help preserve railroading’s incredible history, and also the sharing of this history through engaging programs and actual train rides. Younger guests often experience their first railroad journey at the Colorado Railroad Museum!

The Museum recaps its accomplishments near the end of each year, while announcing plans for the coming year. Here is the latest update, for your review. We hope you’ll agree that the Colorado Railroad Museum has a track record of carefully stewarding its resources to maximize impact, while also achieving notable results. Your contribution makes a difference!
