A real gem in Danbury!!! A wonderful collection of equipment both inside and outside. The gentlemen on site were very knowledgeable and helpful. Most of the equipment outside seems to be in "as found" condition. We were disappointed that most of the equipment was off limits although there were stairs leading up to some. Also, no access to the turntable that is advertised.

This was a fairly small but interesting museum. They have some small indoor exhibits and displays, but by far the best part was the outdoor train yard you can wander at your leisure. You can go into several of the cars to explore, and my favorite was exploring the mail train car and reading about how mail traveled by train. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

The buttons on the two local models were not working at all and the general model train exhibition wasn't very different from other model trains seen elsewhere, but at least that one worked

Not much there, but it is cute. Tell them if you are a veteran for a discount. the train ride is very short. Employees were nice.

A fun experience at this museum. Loved hearing all of the history about the trains in the yard. Also enjoyed getting to explore inside of the steam engine. Definitely a fun place for children.
