The Friday Tour

December 15, 2023

Tour Guide in Railcar

Special Topic Tour every Friday 1:30PM-2:30PM

Guided Theme Tour: $3 plus General Admission (Free for Museum Members, ages under 2). This is a walking tour and does not include a train ride.

Each Friday, the Museum offers two traditional tours. The Highlight Tour acts as a wonderful introduction to the Museum, its collections and the railroads impact on Colorado’s history. Visitors can also join us for the afternoon tour where each week our trained guides delve more deeply into a different aspect of Colorado’s railroad history.
