The museum’s second annual Train Time event will take place on Sunday, June 10 from noon – 2 pm and all activities will be included in the museum’s regular admission price ($9 adults & children, $8 seniors, children under 12 months old free).
Children will issued special tickets as they enter the museum and a uniformed train conductor from the Amtrak Downeaster will be on hand to talk with families and punch each child’s ticket. Children will also receive free train activity books and learn about rail safety from representatives of Operation Lifesaver.
The off-site part of the Train Time event takes place at the Dover Railyard at 75 Oak Street. Families will be shuttled to this site via trolley service donated by Regal Limousine.

Volunteers from Pan Am Railways will be conducting train tours, punching tickets and answering questions at the railyard.
