Nevada has a history rich with the stories of trains, and the Nevada State Railroad Museum is dedicated to preserving that heritage. In Southern Nevada, the Railroad Museum is just outside of Boulder City. Visitors can explore the grounds and the static displays, but the real fun is taking a ride on one of the historic trains. Guests can also get a more up-close experience with the Rail Explorers, which offers open air, pedal powered rides along the historic train tracks. If you like trains, this is the place to learn about them in depth. A stop at the Railroad Museum in Boulder City is a great addition to a trip out to see Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, or to explore the historic district in downtown Boulder City.
Hours:Due to COVID-19, please check with the attraction for the most recent updates to their opening hours.
