This was worth the drive since the exhibits on display were worth seeing up close. Summer is best for a visit, but winter will not disappoint. Library and gift shop are worth the visit too.

Really fun experience for young ones! Think Santa even shows up around Xmas! You'll love all of the historic trains and even a little ride around the property. Call first for details and timing.

This is a great place to take the kids. You can visit the inside of rail cars; see mini trains; and just have fun running around. You can ride in a train on Saturdays.

Kids love getting in and out of the trains. Had a lot of fun! They liked watching the trains inside. A exciting place to learn history of Colorado.
