Colorado Railroad Museum Spring Volunteer Fair

GOLDEN Colo. – Colorado’s largest railroad museum is looking for volunteers who are interested in helping people learn about the fascinating and important roles that railroads have played in our state’s history.

Located in beautiful Clear Creek Valley near Golden, and just 12 miles west of downtown Denver, the Colorado Railroad Museum proudly features a team of 300 volunteers who participate in railroad operation and maintenance, educational programs, special events staffing, enhancing the visitor experience and many other unique roles.

Volunteers enjoy a number of fun and exciting opportunities. Help run large events like Day Out with Thomas™ and THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride. Work behind the scenes on new exhibits, inspire school kids to learn about railroad history, and educate visitors through unique offerings including turntable demonstrations, diesel engine simulations, crafts and interpretive stations. No prior railroad experience is necessary.  Volunteers attend orientation classes and receive on-the-job training, then go on to help visitors have fun while learning about Colorado’s fascinating railroad history.


The Colorado Railroad Museum will hold a Volunteer Fair on Saturday, March 2, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the fair, you can learn about volunteer opportunities, meet team members, and sign up for volunteer training classes. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, and preferably, interested in working with the public, children and families. We are looking for outgoing people who love to share and work with others and will adhere to general volunteer safety standards and codes of conduct.

To learn more about volunteering and/or to sign up as a volunteer, please visit, or contact Volunteer Manager Corey Pearson at or call (720) 274-5141. All Aboard!
