Thank you for your interest in helping the Colorado Railroad Museum run our yearly special events. We couldn't possibly do these events without the help of dozens of talented volunteers like yourself.

We are looking for helpers to come out and set-up, decorate, and tear down the events. We also need volunteers to staff will call, activity stations, prep materials, price merchandise, cashier and usher.

Signing up as a part-time event volunteer will get you on our monthly newsletter where you will receive info on upcoming volunteer needs at the museum. If you are interested, simply reply to the email and we'll get you on the schedule.

Part-time volunteers have no obligation to fulfil minimum hour requirements throughout the year. Our largest needs are at the end of the year September through December each year helping with Day Out With Thomas and the Polar Express Train Ride.
