10AM-2PM Volunteer Fair at the Colorado Railroad Museum

Volunteers at the Colorado Railroad Museum

The Colorado Railroad Museum is hosting a Volunteer Fair on Saturday, June 8, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the four-hour fair you can learn about volunteer opportunities, meet and talk with team members in person, 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!

The 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. You’ll have the chance to 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. To learn more about volunteering and/or to sign up as a volunteer, join us on Saturday, June 8 for the Volunteer Fair. You can also visit, or contact Volunteer Manager Corey Pearson at or (720) 274-5141. All Aboard!
