There are so many hidden treasures here in Las Cruces, New Mexico. One of those treasure that I stumbled upon is the Las Cruces Railroad Museum.
My father was a railroad fanatic when I was growing up, so I’ve always had an interest in railroads and railroad history. This year my two-year-old grandson has become obsessed with trains, so I have found myself with a renewed interest as well. That is how we found the Las Cruces Railroad Museum. I’d heard other parents and grandparents recommend the museum but hadn’t been there myself.
A few months ago I decided to take my grandson to check out the Las Cruces Railroad Museum. It was a great experience! The museum offers something for all ages. There’s a train table for the kids, a running model train that kids can operate, and great exhibits for the adults.
The Las Cruces Railroad Museum has become one of my grandson’s favorite destinations. In fact, every time I see my grandson he asks me, “Go see trains G-Bob?” While I can’t take him to the train museum every time I see him, it is our favorite place to spend quality time together.
The Train Museum is open Thursday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free, so it is a cheap, fun and education way to entertain grandkids and grandparents alike. The museum has lots of special events, including Winterfest coming up on Dec. 3. I will post more information about Winterfest next week.
You can also find more information about the Las Cruces Railroad Museum at their web site. You can also see more photos of my grandson enjoying the Las Cruces Railroad Museum here on our Flickr page or on our facebook page here.
The Las Cruces Railroad Museum is located in the historic Railroad Depot located at 351 N. Mesilla St., at the intersection of Las Cruces Ave. and Mesilla St. Traveling west on Amador Ave. from Alameda; turn right on Mesilla St. before the railroad tracks. Or: take Las Cruces Ave. west until it ends at Mesilla St.
