Wilton Historical Society Great Trains Holiday Show
November 29, 2019 - January 20, 2020$5 – $10
Trains, Trains, Trains–and Santa, too, for the holidays at the Wilton Historical Society! The Wilton Historical Society is the place to be–come enjoy the ever-popular Great Trains Holiday Show!
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 gondola! 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–a spectacular model winter village 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 Great Trains Holiday Show is open Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sundays, 12-4 p.m., beginning Friday, Nov. 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.
