Wilton's Great Trains Holiday Show Returns!

The Great Trains Holiday Show opens November 26 at Wilton Historical Society and runs through Monday, January 17, 2022

Trains, Trains, Trains – and Santa, too, for the holidays at the Wilton Historical Society!

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”.
