Hello and thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Colorado Railroad Museum! The Polar Express is a magical event that directly supports the museum all year long. There are many positions throughout the end of the year and your help as an Usher, Welcome Attendant, or Christmas Decorator is invaluable to the success of the event.

Set-up and Tear Down

We are looking for help decorating the museum for this event. The shift is advertised Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 2:00pm October 25th - November 5th however we are very flexible with volunteer schedules and appreciate any help you can offer. Some positions can be seated indoors where others involve climbing ladders, moving props and hanging garland.

Show Nights 

Each night the show runs, we are looking for volunteers to help as Ushers, Welcome Attendants, and Exit Attendants as well as with train and boarding support. Welcome Attendants help with check in and seating as visitors arrive and then move into the pavilion to help with cleaning and resetting the tables in between shows. 

Exit Attendants help in the Depot to pack merchandise orders, collect lanyards, hand out gift bags, and assist in cleaning the pavilion between shows.
