Whippany Railway Museum — Great Experience for Kids.


Yesterday, my wife and I took our son to the Whippany Railway Museum. We’ve been there before. It’s one of my two year old’s absolute favorite places. He loves trains. We rushed to try to make the 1:00 train ride but it was sold out and we had to wait an entire hour for the next ride at 2:00. I can tell that my wife was stressed at the prospect of keeping our very active son busy for an entire hour. Luckily, there was plenty to do. He rode on a kid steam engine ride. We watched the model trains on a very large outdoor track (and waived to Thomas the Train as he rode by). We went to the museum and bought some books. We drank some old fashioned root beer. And when we finally got on the train, we had a Zen-like ride. No frenetic energy. Just a very mellow family outing watching the scenery.

There’s a serious level of commitment by the folks who run the museum. They are all true train lovers, and totally devoted to making your visit a excellent one.

All questions will be answered.

If you’re considering a trip to the Whippany Railway Museum — try to do it on a Sunday when they’re having the Caboose Rides. Trust me you’ll love it.

Thanks for your kind words, Jesse. Sorry your family missed the first train — for future rides, you can buy tickets ahead of time at our website. We run seasonal trains throughout the year, from the Easter Bunny Express to the Santa Claus Special, and the volunteer-run Museum is open every Sunday from April to October. I’m glad your family enjoyed your visit! (A Volunteer at the Whippany Railway Museum)
