I took my daughter to the Colorado Train Museum in Golden and we had so much fun that it's my JB's Family Pick for this week; I highly recommend catching a ride on the train.

The museum is volunteer-operated by local train enthusiasts, so your patronage keeps the doors open for the public to explore American train history. 

Cruise the museum’s 15-acre rail yard with over 100 locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses.

Each Friday from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., the museum features a behind-the-scenes tour; this week's theme is the caboose.

Admission: $10 adults, $5 children (ages 2-17), $8 seniors (ages 60+). Museum members, children under 2 and active military personnel enter for free. 

Ride Tickets: $4 adults (18+), $2, Children (ages 2-17). Museum members and children under 2 enter for free.
