Annual Holiday Train Show at Connecticut River Museum
November 23, 2021 - February 20, 2022
The Annual Holiday Train Show is being held through February 20, 2022 at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex.
Trains run daily Tuesday through Sunday.
This family-friendly exhibit, created by train artist Steve Cryan, features more trains, new scenery, and lots of surprises to be found in the fully operational 26-foot model train layout. Visitors can also challenge themselves with the I-SPY scavenger hunt for objects hidden with the displays and throughout the exhibit gallery. Smaller visitors set can get hands-on at an American Flyer and Lionel Train layout designed for toddler size viewing. The exhibit is a true locomotive extravaganza and a perfect outing for train fans and all who are young at heart.
As with most events this year, our Annual Holiday Train will look different. To ensure that every guest can view the exhibit and maintain safe social distancing.
