Museum Closed January and February 2021
Due to COVID concerns and sparse visitations, the museum will be closed to the public for the months of January and February after which it will be decided if further closures are necessary. 

The Farmington Valley Model Railroad Society designed and built the first Collinsville railroad diorama in the late 70’s.  It more recently redesigned using more modern landscape materials and 3D printers to depict building in their surroundings in more realistic detail.  Their skilled work has created the current diorama which has proven to be an interesting and fascinating highlight of our exhibits.  Below we have added the group’s newsletter for your interest in model railroading and their activities.  They too are interested in gaining additional members to share in their activities.  They can be reached at or at (860) 693-2793.
