The Danbury Railway Museum’s Christmas Fundraiser begins Saturday, December 2nd and runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 23rd.
Parents: This is a personalized gift-giving experience! Santa and Mrs. Claus will be handing out the first gifts of Christmas, and your kids are the lucky recipients! Bring a pre-wrapped present or select from our online menu (which includes FREE gift wrapping & batteries).
Your ticket grants you full admission to the museum and railyard, where you’ll find artifact displays and antique railroad cars.
When you arrive and check in at our restored 1903 train station, kids and parents will be able to enjoy the museum interior. This includes a Letters to Santa coloring station, operating model railroads, and interesting museum exhibits. (Be sure to include your mailing address, as Santa writes back!)
After a very short train ride in a restored 1950s Rail Diesel Car through historic Danbury Railyard, you’ll be escorted back to the station for a no-rush meet and greet with Santa and Mrs. Claus, where the big man himself will give out the first gifts of Christmas!
Afterwards, you are free to enjoy a walk through our railyard with a cup of hot chocolate. Don’t forget the marshmallows and a fresh baked cookie!
The museum is open from noon to 7:00 PM on the following dates.
Note: The 5:00 and 6:30 trains will be dark enough to fully enjoy our lighted railyard!
