Great Train Holiday Show at Wilton Historical Society
November 23, 2018 - January 21, 2019
Great Train Holiday Show at Wilton Historical Society will be held from November 23 – January 21, 2018. 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”.
The trains are open Wednesday to Saturday from 10:00 – 4:00, and Sundays 12:00 – 4:00.
Wednesdays – Saturdays, 10:00-4:00; Sundays 12 – 4.
