Awesome experience and I don't even collect or play with trains. Give yourself an hour, maybe two to fully appreciate all the intricacy that went into this working museum staffed by volunteer collectors and enthusiasts. You'll be glad you did.

This was a pleasant surprise and not expected. The overall layout was well thought through for all ages. Even my one year old could stand on a little pedestal and see all the trains from above ... which she quite enjoyed! My 4 year old was just amazed by all the train tunnels and did not get bored for over... More

Really enjoyed wandering through here and seeing all the detail put into this model railroad layout. All the little details and nuances are amazing. The history that is in this room to do with the Historical Colorado Railroad is mind blowing. I only had about an hour to rush through but you could easily take a day and explore and... More

My second visit from England and it just gets better. There is so much to see it's impossible on one visit. From giant cliffs 15 feet high and oil-tank trains of 98 wagons - I bet they don't pack that away at the end of the day - down to detailed grasses and the 2 guys in the river whilst... More

This is a fantastic place to visit; something for the whole family. There is a lot of activity as there are about 14+ trains running at one time. The scenery is fabulous and there are activities for the small children as well. There is an historic model of the Fitzgerald ship lost at sea. It is well worth the admission... More

The Colorado Model Railroad Museum is housed in a building specifically built for it & is home to an incredible HO scale layout. I have seen layouts offering as much track space but have never seen a layout to equal this one. 28,000 individual artificial trees were used in the layout to impart extra realism. Due to the layout's size,... More

It is a wonderful place to take children and I as an adult loved to see all of the trains and an actual location in Oregon. The miniature layout was great and the work in detail was very real. Good look at railroads and the communities they serve. Showed a realistic wildfire and firefighters on the scene.
