The Limon Heritage Railroad Park & Museum Complex is a facility firmly grounded in its pioneer roots with varied adventures waiting for the visitor, whether your interests are railroads; famous area ranches, cowboys and western saddles; Native American artifacts; growing wheat; award-winning photos of the short grass prairie and vintage photos celebrating 100 years of small town growth and change; or ever changing exhibits such as our new Dust Bowl and Changes in Communication collections. Our park houses eight windmills; a distinctive 11-foot bronze "Prairie Odyssey" sculpture by cowboy artist Herb Mignery (pictured to the left); lovely memorial gardens; and a Pioneer Monument with 1892 Cattle Scale dedicated to area ranchers.
The Museum is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day from 1pm - 8pm Monday-Saturday and on Sunday's from 1pm - 4pm. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
