Guests will receive a 2018 punch card upon arrival.

Family nights are held the first Friday of every month. In addition to providing extended hours for visitors to access the museum’s range of interactive railroading displays and the history of the west, each family night features a unique art or learning opportunity that is fun for the entire family. Next month’s Family Night is Apr. 6, and will feature the theme “Under the Big Top! Circus Night at the Museum” hosted by the Tangier Shrine.
