Good destination for families. The museum has something to appeal to people of all ages. Interesting even if you're not especially into trains.

We visited the Danbury railway museum on Owney Day, celebrating a dog who travelled all over the world on postal train cars. The train ride through the yard and stops along the way were well-organized, and a lovely women told the children stories about Owney while we enjoyed our ride. We stood on the turntable while it moved, toured a... More

I want to start by stressing that the museum, though awesome, is pretty small. It's not a destination for a long trip, but rather a great place to combine with other local attractions or a stopping off point on a longer car trip. If you have a reason to be in the area, then this is a great place to... More

We visited over 4th of July weekend. The exhibits and model train displays were interesting, but seems to be a work in progress. The museum is run by volunteers who are all very pleasant and knowledgable. Worth taking the short train ride to see and ride the turntable. The best part was being able to go in and explore some...

Everyone working/volunteering that day was super informative and you could tell they loved their trains. Not a big museum but I enjoyed the visit.

I went with my 70 year old mom and 25 year old kids and everybody had fun-you have to like trains to enjoy the museum. If you aren't a train buff (my future son-in law loves trains) you will probably not have much fun. The train ride is short, but it was worth it and climbing around in the train... More

We took our two year old grandson for a ride with the Easter Bunny. What a pleasant time we had. The trains are cool. It looks like they are trying to raise money for refurbishment. They had lots of different kinds of trains to see. the train ride was cute for the little ones. Everyone was very friendly. The tools... More
