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

We brought our almost 2-yr. old grandson to the Railway Museum in August because we live right in Danbury! It was wonderful, even for his young age. Inside they have a giant screen with movies of old trains, but the highlight was the city train displays that move and you can push buttons. There was a whole area of set-up... More

My family has been visiting the Danbury Railway museum for years. We started out years ago with our grandson. We are now looking forward to visiting with our great grand daughter.

We went for the pumpkin patch ride that was advertised as a 25 min. ride. The train moved about 400 feet at a 5 mile/hr speed. Then my son got to pick his "free" pumpkin and have some cheap cookies and cider. All of this for $10/person. Don't waist your time and money!! If you're looking for a nice train... More

My son is a train fanatic! We have a family membership and drive about a half hour every weekend to come here! The volunteer staff are very friendly and helpful! There are train sets to play with and interactive train layouts for the children and adults to enjoy! Looking forward to the pumpkin patch event in October!
