Galloping Goose Historical Society Of Dolores Inc Reviews & Ratings
Small but friendly, in a reproduction of the original Depot. Lots of pictures, books, and videos. Many story boards detailing the history of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad. Also a small layout of the historical depot area and a nice large model of the Galloping Goose. Well worth a quick visit.
Great small museum about a "niche" element of the historic narrow gauge railroad system. Very helpful, enthusiastic and informative staff, they gave us great personal attention and were very knowledgeable. A short tour and visit, 15 to 60 minutes, depending on your interest and questions for the staff. Nice souvenirs, books and maps for sale in the gift shop. I think it is free, as I don't remember paying for anything but my maps.
The volunteers were not only extremely knowledgeable and helpful, but really went out of their way to make our experience very special! Loved hearing all the history of the area and the grandkids had a ball on the train!
Its a little lovely place to come see history ,
Cool little museum with lots of history
