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!

My friends and I have gone to several local railroad themed points of interest and this is one of the best. We had our own personal volunteer guide who took us through all the engines and cars and provided history and background that made this special. While we didn't get the train ride that only is available on weekends, we... More

I grew up in Danbury and remember when this was the real train station! This was a great find. My husband who is a major rail fan and my teenage son who is not, spent several happy hours here during a family visit. You can go in many of the trains in the yard, and the indoor museum has many...
