This event isn’t the cheapest Easter adventure, but for some may be worth the price. On Saturday, April 11, the Colorado Railroad Museum (17155 W. 44th Ave. in Golden) hosts its annual Bunny Express Train from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (The museum itself is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Admission is higher than normal because it’s considered a special event with trains running and unlimited rides.
According to the museum, “your whole family can hop on the Bunny Express Train featuring our 1880′s vintage passenger coach and experience what it was like to travel 100 years ago. The Easter Bunny and Spike the Railyard Hound will be on-hand with special spring treats.”
Join in the fun of Egg Rolling, Bean Bag Toss, Coloring Zone and Ladder Golf. Enjoy the entertainment of balloon twisters, face painters, stilt walkers, jugglers and turntable demonstrations. Fill your Easter Baskets with candy, toys, temporary tattoos and gifts from the Depot Gift Store.
For the adults, the museum building is a replica of an 1880s-style 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.
Adults are $20, seniors (60+) are $15 and children are $10. Museum members and children under 2 are FREE. You can purchase tickets in advance here or at the gate.
