Spring Break: Model Railroads

March 30, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


Enjoy hands-on activities, conversations with model railroad experts, demonstrations and “make and take crafts” – all themed around model railroading!

Guests are invited to participate in our daily “pop up” exhibit by bringing in your own rail car, filling out an “exhibit” label and placing it “on display” for the day. Model rail cars from the Museum’s permanent collection will also be on display in the library.

Each day features a guest model-maker focusing on a special type of model train:
– Friday: Building Block Trains with Lego Modeler Todd Prebynski and Miniatures with the Museum of Dolls, Toys & Miniatures

Members from the Museum’s on-site model railroads, the Denver Garden Railway Society and the Denver HO Model Railroad Club will operate their layouts select days throughout the week.

Join us as we explore all things model railroads at this special program for families during spring break week! And Friday is a Boulder County Free Day with rides behind D&RGW Steam Locomotive No. 346 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.

Admission: Museum Members, Boulder County Residents and Children under 2 are free, Children $5, Adults $10, and Seniors $8.
Steam Train Ride Tickets: Boulder County Residents Free, Adults $4 (16+), Children $2 (2-15, under 2 is free). Museum members receive $1 discount per ticket.

Thanks to our sponsor, make sure to stop by their display:

Our sponsor, Caboose will be operating a satellite store during this special week so you can add to (or start) your own collection!
