The Best Free Stuff to Do in Durango, Colorado

Visit the Train Museum

One of the most iconic museums in town is the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Museum. This massive attraction is located in the only narrow gauge roundhouse built in the 20th-century. The staff at the museum are well-versed in the history of Durango, the railroad, as well as current events in town. Chat with them and take a look at the many displays in the museum, like the 19th-century train equipment and even a baggage car that featured in the classic movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Visiting this museum is a great thing to do with kids in Durango!

This is a great place to visit with children, as they will be able to spot local wildlife and learn all about the flora and fauna of our beautiful town. Another great free activity is exploring the Animas River Trail. Go tubing, kayaking, or rafting on the river, or hike and bike the nearby trails during your day.
