We hold a number of events throughout the year when unlimited rides on the trains are available and included in the admission cost. Perfect for a Family Day out in Colchester.
Due to safety restrictions, no museum trains will operate during the Cider or Beer Festivals, and some parts of the site will be closed.
Our museum Branches also run regular meetings, talks and presentations, please visit the Local Branches page for more details.
