William Glassco Railroad Fun Day

Every season the museum holds an open house event full of railroad fun. This year's William Glassco Railroad Fun Day will be held on Saturday, August 19th, 2017! This event will be an afternoon full of museum tours, model displays, safety displays, activities, crafts, face painting, games, snacks, and more!  The event is free of charge and will be held at the museum at 2 McLean Street, Chatham, Ontario, across from VIA Rail.  Bring the whole family for an afternoon of railway culture and fun! 

Canada Day

Once again, the museum will be open and running activities, rain or shine, for this extra special Canada Day. Drop in at any time during our regular hours (10:00 am to 3:00 pm) on July 1st to enjoy an afternoon of fun festivities! There will be face painting, a scavenger hunt inside the museum, a special Canada Day craft, and an outdoor game for as long as the weather allows. As per usual, everything is free of charge, though donations are always accepted. We'd love to have you celebrate Canada's sesquicentennial with us!
