Bay State Model Railroad Museum Open House - kid friendly

Come see one of the greatest pieces of folk art in the Boston area.

Your kids are invited to join us, too.

Come tour three scale railroads of national prominence featuring N, HO, HOn3, O, and O Trolley models. You will see state-of-the-art modeling of friendly neighborhoods, beautiful landscapes, and, of course, railroads. The expanse and detail of these models continues to intrigue comers of all ages, year after year.

These are true model railroads, not just toy trains. Our Museum, our models, and our modelers have been published in international print and video media and have won numerous awards.

This is a terrific event for children and adults alike and provides an opportunity for the whole family to get out and have a great time together.

Join the Bay State Model Railroad Museum and our co-sponsors for our Annual Holiday Celebration!

    I was there but did not stay long enough to see anyone. Too claustrophobic, and the dog couldn't see high enough for the exhibits. Good for kids, many were there....

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
