All aboard! This freebie is on track to be a fun day for the whole family. Thursday, March 17 is the first FREE Day for 2022 at the Colorado Railroad Museum (17155 W. 44th Ave.) in Golden, thanks to the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District. The “train station” is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is regularly $10 for adults (16 to 59), $8 for seniors (60+) and $5 for children (2 to 15.)
The museum showcases more than just lots of trains. The main building is a replica of an 1880’s depot. It houses thousands of rare photographs, artifacts and documents, which highlight the colorful history of the railroads in Colorado for more than 125 years.
In addition, families and train enthusiasts can explore the railyard, roundhouse and library with one of the most comprehensive collections on all things train-related.
A few tickets are still available! Even though tickets are FREE, reservations are required — click here.
Train rides will be offered between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an additional fee:
$4 for adults (18 & older)
$2 for children (ages 2 to 17)
FREE for under age 2
If you miss the station on this one, there are two more FREE Days scheduled for 2022 — May 12 and October 6.
