May 19

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Thursday, repeating until August 12, 2022

Child Pushes Turntable with Volunteer

Every Thursday from May 12 – August 11, join us for Thrilling Thursday  from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m! Each Thursday features historic characters, demonstrations, and special guests from our cultural partner organizations. A weekly Pop-Up Exhibit will explore this summer’s theme of innovation, and kids can “scavenger hunt” for our mascot, Spike! Enjoy craft activities, turntable demonstrations, try out our low-tech but fun locomotive simulator, and learn about telegraphy, too. Bring your kids, grandkids and friends—they’ll enjoy learning about Colorado’s rich railroad heritage while having fun, too! (Included with regular Museum Admission). Train Rides also available 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
