#2 of 10 in Things to do in Boothbay
There’s a lot to see and do during a visit to the Boothbay Railway Village.

Our thirty acre setting includes more than two dozen buildings many of which are filled with displays of artifacts related to Maine’s railroading history, the advent of the automobile and the everyday life of Mainers from the mid-eighteenth through the mid-nineteenth centuries. Our outstanding Model Railroad Exhibit is still under construction and visitors witness the changes first hand as they visit time and again.

  • We went here for the Polar Express. Keep your expectations reasonable and you will love it. You won’t see Tom Hanks and don’t expect the train to race but overall it’s a great experience. The staff were friendly and professional, especially the conductor and engineer. The conductor was dressed in an authentic Polar Express outfit and let us take pictures with our children. The engineer took time to explain how the train works and is maintained to my very curious son. He was great. All the folks in the village were wonderful as well. We had cookies, hot chocolate, went to story time, and got treats in he gift shop. I would recommend this for younger kids for sure.
  • Antique cars, model trains, a ride on the railway. All sorts of fun for the whole family. We were not disappointed!
