Overview

The Limon Heritage Railroad Park & Museum Complex is a facility firmly grounded in its pioneer roots with varied adventures waiting for the visitor, whether your interests are railroads; famous area ranches, cowboys and western saddles; Native American artifacts; growing wheat; award-winning photos of the short grass prairie and vintage photos celebrating 100 years of small town growth and change; or ever changing exhibits such as our new Dust Bowl and Changes in Communication collections. Our park houses eight windmills; a distinctive 11-foot bronze "Prairie Odyssey" sculpture by cowboy artist Herb Mignery (pictured to the left); lovely memorial gardens; and a Pioneer Monument with 1892 Cattle Scale dedicated to area ranchers. The Museum is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day from 1pm - 8pm Monday-Saturday and on Sunday's from 1pm - 4pm. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.

Vivid stories of families on the high plains with authentic collections professionally displayed. Enthusiastic staff brought it to life for us with tales of joy and struggle for families who settled here. Remarkable. Don't miss this.

Our family stopped to stretch our legs and had a great time at the museum! Our 4, 3, and 1-year-old were all encouraged by the staff/volunteers to explore and touch things!

This place has come a long way over the years. If you've ever been curious at to Limon's past and it's roots, this is a great place to visit. The railroad displays are awesome to walk through.
