Community Day 2016 was the perfect event to mark the Museum’s 50th anniversary and to celebrate the reopening of the 1949 Santa Fe Caboose exhibit.

The restoration of the caboose was made possible through donations from the community, the generosity of sponsors, and cooperation between city staff and the Museum Foundation.

Some of the repairs include new paint inside and out, electrical upgrades, remote video security and other enhancements. The interior was mostly intact when the caboose arrived at the Museum in 1989. Restoration workers were careful to retain the essence of this period-correct artifact.

The exhibit is typically accessible during museum hours and special occasions.
