Colorado Railroad Museum
This summer, the Colorado Railroad Museum has something fun planned every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday through August 16. Climb aboard for train rides all four days each weekend, and enjoy the Museum’s primarily outdoor campus with fresh air and plenty of rich railroad heritage to enjoy. Here’s a quick rundown:
Thrilling Thursdays: Each Thursday features special guests and demonstrations. (Included with regular museum admission). 10 am-2 pm.
Fridays: Enjoy an hour of exploring a different aspect of Colorado’s railroad history with a themed, guided tour. ($3 per person, in addition to regular museum admission).
Saturdays and Sundays: Touring the Rails! Volunteers are stationed at key locations throughout the outdoor railyard to answer questions and point out some of railroading’s less obvious but more universal aspects between 10 am and 2 pm. (Included with regular Museum Admission).
Train Rides: Departing Thursday through Sunday, every half-hour, 10 am-3 pm. Ride aboard open-air cars pulled by a small but mighty diesel-electric locomotive. ($4 adults, $2 children ages 6-17, in addition to regular museum admission. Free for members).
Now through August 16 at the Colorado Railroad Museum, 17155 W. 44th Avenue, Golden.
