About this activity

Rated as one of the top 10 attractions of the Denver Metro area, the Colorado Railroad Museum was founded in 1959. Located on 15 acres at the base of beautiful North Table Mountain in the golden foothills of the Rockies, the Museum is the largest narrow gauge museum in the Rocky Mountain West, with 100 pieces of equipment, including several historic steam locomotives. The renowned Robert W. Richardson Library houses one of the most extensive collections of railroad materials in the country, while the Cornelius Hauck Roundhouse, designed like a roundhouse of the early 1900s, is a state of the art restoration facility. Outside the roundhouse is a working Armstrong turntable. The Museum Depot, a replica of an 1880's depot, houses exhibits that tell the story of Colorado's colorful railroad history. Don't miss the Denver HO Club model railroad layout or the Denver Garden Railway exhibit nestled in a beautiful shady garden spot on Museum grounds. The Colorado Railroad Museum is a great place for families and rail fans alike. Many of the historic rail cars are open to the public, and there are many opportunities throughout the year to ride behind a locomotive in a 19th century passenger car.
