The Danbury Railway Museum is a non-profit organization staffed solely by volunteers. The Museum, located in the historic station and rail yard in downtown Danbury, Connecticut, offers railroad history, rail excursion trips, a collection of original and restored rolling stock, and opportunities for hands-on railroad work at "12 inches to the foot" scale.

The goal of the Danbury Railway Museum, Inc., is to operate a railway museum in Danbury, CT, to educate the public as to the history of railroading and the role of the railroads as part of our local and national heritage, and to engage in any and all activities convenient to said purposes.

In achieving its goals, the DRM takes full advantage of Danbury's unique rail facilities, the old Danbury rail yard and station. DRM's ever growing collection of rolling stock and railroad items includes many one-of-a-kind pieces such as the New Haven RR Mack FCD railbus and a fully operating turntable.

A must visit place if you are in the Danbury area with kids.Lots to learn for kids. They have working models, a lot of exhibits for kids and adults both. There is a train ride as well where u can can either take tickets for sitting in the coach or locomotive. The locomotive can seat only 2. On the way you see the yard and a locomotive turntable. This place definitely needs money and volunteers for the upkeep and to preserve the history for the future generations.Check out the wooden whistle in the gift shop.

Kids loved the model railroads and exploring real trains. Train ride wasnt great but only cost $3. Best part of the train ride was seeing the working turntable from 1913.

Great place to stop by if you’re in the area. The staff is made up entirely of volunteers and several have worked in the industry and are clearly very passionate about the museum.
