Every Friday, join us for an hour of exploring a different aspect of Colorado’s railroad history with a themed, guided tour! Each week’s theme is explored using a variety of museum resources to help bring the subject to life, and guests are welcome to continue their visit on their own after the tour ($3 per person, in addition to regular Museum Admission).

Know Before You Go: Masks are currently required to gain entry to the Museum. We recommend purchase of admission and train ride tickets in advance, as our overall Museum and Train Ride capacities have been reduced for the time being.
