Nevada State Railroad Museum
Nevada State Railroad Museum Overview
If your family is looking for a little adventure, consider driving on over to Boulder City on a Saturday or Sunday, and visit the Nevada State Railroad Museum.
The family can take a tour of the outdoor train museum display and even enter some of the cars for an inside view.
Be sure and pick up your tickets for an actual 45-minute round-trip train ride. During the train ride, your family can relax in the air-conditioned, enclosed cars, or venture out into the open cars.
Either way, you can enjoy the old-time environment and the conductors walking around telling their stories and history of the trains. The outdoor cars are a great way to enjoy the desert scenery and listen to the sounds of the train going down the railroad tracks.
After arriving back at the station, be sure and check out the gift shop to pick up a little train souvenir, too. The selection includes a wooden train whistle, pens with decorative trains on the end, and real toy trains, of course. Be sure and check out the Nevada State Railroad Museum website to know train departure times.
