Insider Info

Located in Essex, CT in the 1878 historic Steamboat Dock building, the Museum offers opportunities for facility rentals for weddings, receptions, anniversaries, and other family events. While historic, the building meets ADA requirements and all floors are accessible by elevator.

Masks are required while on the Museum’s grounds.

Online ticket purchases are preferred to facilitate touch-free entry.

Fun Facts

Steve Cryan, the museum curator, is not only a train aficionado but an artist too. When not engaging visitors with stories, history, and train facts, Cryan can be seen working on his latest painting.

Each year, visitors look forward to the return of the Annual Holiday Train Show. In November, the third-floor exhibit space is transformed into a wonderland.
