Volunteers invest thousands of hours to help ensure that the Museum’s 100,000+ annual visitors enjoy a memorable and educational experience of Colorado’s railroad heritage.

We invite you to serve as a Volunteer so that your individual talents can help keep the Museum one of the best of its kind. And you’ll gain knowledge related to railroading, history, artifacts, visitor services and other important aspects of our events and operations.
