Member Appreciation Day
August 15, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Museum members, we are offering you something special on four different Sundays in 2021—exclusively! On these days a special, dedicated car is available just for YOU to ride on our trains, and exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Tours are available for you to enjoy, too! These tours provide a deeper look into selected aspects of the Museum.
For the August 15 Behind the Scenes Tour, join us for “Uncovering our Stories: Researching the Museum’s Newest Exhibit.” During this tour, our curators will focus on the research that went into the Museum’s latest exhibit, Across the Fruited Plain: Traveling West to Colorado by Rail. We’ll be announcing more details soon, and reservations will be available online in the second half of July.
A variety of activities will be ongoing from the Rail Fair event (click here) as well. Museum members of course enjoy free admission and train rides based on your level of membership. Capacity is limited, so advance reservations are suggested. All Aboard!
Admission: $10 adults, $5 ages 2-17, $8 seniors ages 60+. Free for Museum members and children under age 2.
Train Rides: $4 adults, $2 ages 2-17. Free for Museum members & children under age 2.
Grounds open 9am–5pm, Special Event activities operate 10am-3pm, rides operate every 30 minutes 10am to 3pm (crews take a lunch break at 12:30 pm).
