25th Annual Holiday Train Show

Sponsored by: Connecticut River Museum

The family-friendly Holiday Train Show exhibit is back at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex for its twenty-fifth year of fun for all ages.  Train artist Steve Cryan has worked his magic again with more trains, new scenery, and lots of surprises to be found in the fully operational 26-foot model train layout.  Visitors are challenged with the I SPY scavenger hunts for objects hidden within the settings, while the very young can get hands-on at the expanded 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.  Sponsored by Lorensen Auto Group and Webster Bank.. The exhibit runs through February 18, 2018.  The Connecticut River Museum is located at 67 Main Street, Essex, CT and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6 for children age 6-12, free for children age 5 and under.  For more information, call 860-767-8269 or go to
