touch a truck

SAVE THE DATE ! Come to the Whippany Railway Museum on Sunday, September 9th for our very first "Touch-A-Truck" event. This fun family outing offers children of all ages a hands-on opportunity to explore working trucks of all types, as well as meeting the people who build, protect and serve the local community.

See a collection of vehicles - fire trucks, transport vehicles, construction vehicles and public health and safety trucks - that will be positioned on the Museum grounds. Attendees can climb into the cabs, honk the horns, examine the equipment, flash the lights and creatively explore the trucks with guidance from the respective professionals who will explain the equipment and discuss the work each vehicle performs.

Each train ticket holder will receive a special commemorative keepsake of the day.

Ride the hourly excursion trains at 1, 2, 3 & 4 PM

Pumpkin Carving

On Sunday, October 07, From 12:30pm to 5:00pm, you and your family can enjoy an afternoon amid the Color and Spirit of Fall in the Whippanong Valley of Morris County, New Jersey.

Autumn is a Season of Family Fun, and the Pumpkin, the reassuring signal of seasonal passage, never fails to bring forth the image of cool nights, bright harvest moons, crackling fires, and the warmth of family and friends. And when pumpkins appear, they take on a playful appearance, alerting everyone that the special magic of HALLOWEEN, with its goblins, ghouls, and witches lies just around the corner.
