“A little museum with lots of events”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

If you have a young train enthusiast, this is the place for them! The museum is small but the railyard has some sort of activity practially every month; Easter Bunny Ride, National Train Day, Turntable rides, Pumpkin Patch rides and Santa Train Rides. A great family event.

“Great collection of New England railway heritage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Whether or not you like trains, if you have children they are probably going to be enthralled with the sights and sounds at Danbury Railway Museum. Inside the main museum building, which is housed in the beautifully restored old station (the current Danbury station is a more modern structure a few hundred yards away) there are lots of historical artifacts, but the children will love the huge N Gauge model railway and other child-friendly displays.

Out in the yard, there is a great collection of locomotives, rail cars, passenger cars and wagons. On select days (usually most weekends) there are short rides up and down the yard on one of the exhibits and there are numerous special days throughout the year including Santa Specials and Easter Egg trains for the kids.

The staff are all enthusiastic volunteers.
