We visited the museum on the Disney day. They had several Disney characters to visit and take pictures with. My daughter loved it! On a typical day though, I think the museum would probably be pretty boring. It's very small, and there isn't much to see there. If you have a passion for model trains, I'm sure it would be... More

This place is the definition of the word "wonderment." The Colorado Model Railroad Museum is a great and pleasant surprise. I fell in love with this museum. I have never really been "into" model trains so I was amazed to discover multiple layers of joy here. The top "layer" of joy is the huge layout of this model world and... More

I have to be honest and say that this was my first train museum. As such, my frame of reference is limited. But it was a great experience to see all of the memorabilia and the cool trains. The conductors are very knowledgeable and accessible. This is a great place to take the kids, large and small, especially on a... More

Spent an hour or so at this surprisingly fun museum. There are several model trains all going at once. You get a sheet of paper at the entrance listing things you search for while walking along and viewing the countryside, towns, farms, etc. I found all but two.

I went for the second time - the last being 5 years ago and reviewed also on Trip Advisor. This visit was pretty much the same as the first. Very interesting model train layout and the real railroad related displays are excellent. There were several people operating the trains (a Saturday).

FABULOUS, well run exhibit that is one of a kind. FEATURED in model railroad magazines and film (available to purchase in imaginative, collectibles gift shop). This is the finest PRIVATE exhibit in the USA and only those with government money put "more" into such an exhibit.

If you like trains, museums, or models this place is amazing! All models were done really, really well. We spent 2 hours just looking at all the exhibits.There is a little gift store and exhibits of people and items that were important to the railroad. They also have annual events that they highlight a topic for the month. Example- March... More

This museum is great. I went here for work to check it out and wasn't disappointed. It has so many things to look at and you can get up close to the models and see all the little details. The staff is very nice and informative. If you have littles, this is a great place to burn an hour or... More

Awesome! Unbelieveable museum and operating model railroad; just like the real thing running outside their front door.

Great for kids and adults. Large scale working train models with lots of towns, switchyards, mountains, lakes, tunnels. You walk above and at train level. Especially fun is looking for the stray dinosaurs.
