    • The Interpretive Center includes 8 different pieces of railroad equipment in various stages of restoration.
    • The Visitor Center has artifacts to take you back to the old Moffat Road railroad times, plus the gift shop has handcrafted local artisan items and kids’ toys available.

Are you worried about the cold weather?
The Railroad Interpretive Center is outdoors; it’s fun to explore the historical equipment inside and out, and read the informational signs. Even if it’s cold outside, you’ll be plenty warm inside the Visitor Center & Gift Shop and the two model train rooms, where you can also take part in the Scavenger Hunt. You may go from outside to inside as you please!

Museum Announced as 2023 Best Museum!

We are very proud to be the recipient of the Sky-Hi News’ 2023 Best of Grand Museum Winner and Family Entertainment Finalist! It was quite the shin-dig last night at Sun Outdoors.

We were pleased to pick up the same awards as last year. But we couldn’t have done it without some help. Thank you to everyone who voted for our museum – your support means a lot to us!

And we’d also like to congratulate all the other award recipients. We think the businesses and nonprofits in Grand are amazing, and like to see folks supporting “shop local”.

We have our Haunted Halloween event coming up and then we will be re-opening the museum for the Holiday Season on Nov. 24. We hope those of you who haven’t been to our museum before will feel inspired to come check us out!
