Museum in Campo to Reopen September 5!


Great news! Please read & share: Our Campo Railroad Park and Museum will be reopening on Saturdays & Sundays starting on September 5th & 6th. As we reopen for train rides and visitation, the safety and well being of our visitors and our volunteer staff will be our highest priority.

Our main display building and our 37-acre property allows for plenty of space and enjoyment of our many outdoor displays. Face coverings are required while riding the train and while inside any building including the Gift Shop, Display Building, and restrooms. High-touch surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day.

Our Valley Flyer Caboose Train will operate on an “as-needed” schedule between 11am and 3:30pm. We are limiting each trip to 10 passengers to allow for sufficient social distancing. High-touch surfaces on the caboose will be sanitized after each round trip.

The purchase of your ticket keeps the lights on and the trains rolling at our 100% volunteer-operated museum. We can’t wait to see you!
