10. Danbury's Historic Railroad Museum

In a half -mile, take a left on White Street to visit the Danbury Railroad Museum. The restored Union Station, now housing the museum, was used as the train station featured in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller Strangers in a Train.

Today you can explore over 70 vintage locomotives and railroad cars; some are even open to tour. The a highlight here is a ride on the large turntable that used to turn locomotives 360 degrees.

Inside, you will find fascinating educational exhibits of railroad artifacts, memorabilia and photographs. A favorite for young and old alike is the display of four operating model train layouts. The rail yard offers train rides on weekends April through November and during special seasonal events.
