School Field Trips

Teachers can plan a field trip for their students to visit the Nevada Southern Railway in historic Boulder City, the city that built Hoover Dam.

Ride the rails with your students and experience history dating back to the 1930’s, the time these rails were laid by the Union Pacific Railroad to service the Boulder Dam Project.

We request a minimum group size of 25, on Thursdays and Fridays. Our group rate for school groups is $5 per person, and for non-school groups
is $5 per child (ages 1-11) and $7 per adult.

To make reservations or for additional information please call us at (702) 486-5933. Additional information can also be found HERE.
