Trains, Trains, Trains – and Santa, too, for the holidays at the Wilton Historical Society!
After the familiar Thanksgiving rituals of parades, turkey and football, keep the family fun going, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. Take the children in your life to an entrancing afternoon with trains and live entertainment. Dressed for the holidays, the Wilton Historical Society’s historic 18th and 19th century buildings are transformed into a train-lovers delight with many different model train layouts winding through tiny towns with a variety of different kinds of buildings, tunnels and even a working Ferris wheel! The display enchants visitors of all ages with lots of buttons to push and knowledgeable “train engineers” on hand to “talk trains”.
New this year – model trains are toot, toot, tooting upstairs in the Toy Loft, which is filled with the favorite toys of yesteryear. In a special train room for the youngest guests, Thomas the Tank Engine and Brio trains are ready for hands-on fun. The Wilton Historical Society is the place to be – come enjoy the ever-popular Great Trains Holiday Show!
The trains are open Wednesday to Saturday from 10:00 – 4:00, and Sundays 12:00 – 4:00.
The Great Trains Holiday Show will run from Friday, November 29, 2019 through Monday, January 20, 2020.
Admission is free for members of the Society; $5 per non-member child and $10 for non-member adults.
