Colorado - Limon Heritage Museum & Railroad Park

Limon, CO - The Life and Legends of the Plains come to life at this extraordinary small town museum which features the Limon Depot, Exhibit Building, and Railroad Park. Together, these attractions comprise our Museum Complex, a free and open-to-the-public journey supported by the Limon Heritage Society

Adventure is waiting for every member of your family in Limon’s Heritage Museum & Railroad Park. The 1910 Limon Depot, restored and maintained by Heritage Society volunteers, is a community treasure recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Formerly a “Union” depot servicing both Rock Island and Union Pacific railroads, it has become an anticipated stop for tourists and a much-loved reminder of the rich history of this “Hub City.”

The Limon Depot houses our town’s extensive Houtz Native American Collection and the permanent “Trains on the Plains” exhibit. Don’t miss the restored railroad office, working N scale model of Limon’s 1940s rail yard, and the intriguing photo essay, “Growing Up in the 1930s.” Share the ranching heritage as you explore the Prairie monument, Western Saddle Boxcar, and walk back in time through the one-room schoolhouse, rail dining car, and Union Pacific Caboose.
