Hobo Camp and Other Railroad Delights

Colorado Railroad Museum - Golden Colorado

Since the kids are on spring break this week, the Railroad Museum has whole week of family-friendly train activities lined up.  Monday they’ll have train stories and a Buffalo Bill reenactor.  Tuesday, you can visit a hobo camp, take a scavenger hunt, and learn the hobo code.  Wednesday, the garden railway will be running and kids can learn some train songs and decorate a railroad cookie.  Thursday is the day to learn about model railroading.  On Friday, kids can hear stories about the Hogwarts Express and meet some real-live owls!

As usual, the Golden Library is a hotbed of activity today.  They have a program for adults 55 and over from 11-12:30.  The topic is preventing identity theft.    Preschool Time  includes stories, singing, rhyming, and dancing from 1:15-1:45.  Tonight’s DIY Lab will help you craft a Pinterest-Worthy Wedding from 5:30-7:30.

The Golden Chamber’s Taste of Golden is tonight from 5-7:30 at the Mountaineering Center.  Tickets are $30 at the door.  Do you really want to cook dinner?
