The Colorado Railroad Museum brings Colorado’s rail heritage to life with more than 100 narrow- and standard-gauge steam and diesel locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars and cabooses.

Located on a spectacular 15-acre site in Clear Creek Valley in Golden, just west of Denver, the museum has a half mile circle of operating track offering Saturday train rides, a working roundhouse and turntable, railroad library, exhibition galleries, outdoor pavilion, and a huge indoor HO model railroad and outdoor G-scale garden railway.

From ringing locomotive bells to climbing on cabooses … from watching detailed model railroads in operation to riding special trains like Thomas the Tank Engine™ and The Polar Express™, the Colorado Railroad Museum offers interactive family fun mixed with authentic Colorado railroad history. Consistently ranked as one of Denver’s Top 10 attractions, the Colorado Railroad Museum delivers an easy afternoon of affordable fun.
