The CTM does not have a food vendor on site - you are responsible for your food. If you would like to order pizza (for instance), there is a decent restaurant that offers take-out just a quarter of a mile west of us; "Sofia's Restaurant". Click here for their pizza menu. Also, if you would like us to supply your paper-goods, please add $25 to the basic party price.
Easter Bunny Fun Day & Pumpkin Patch party - $250 (weekends in October from Oct 6th until Oct 29th) - ($10 per person over our standard party size of 25).
Winterfest party - $250 (Nov 24th, 25th, 26th & Dec Weekends) - ($10 per person over our standard party size of 25).
After your two hour period, you and your guests are welcome to remain on the grounds to enjoy more trolley rides, walk through the Trolley and Fire Museum (the Fire Museum is closed during Winterfest) or just sit and enjoy watching the trolleys arrive and depart from North Road Station. (If you have the last time slot of the day, you are welcome to come in early to enjoy everything before your party). Time slots available are Saturdays & Sundays 11am & 2:00pm and everyday of the week during full time operation (June 19th - August 31st).
A $50 deposit is required to hold your date, non-refundable if party is canceled less than 5 days before your reserved date.
We ask that you leave the dining car promptly at the end of your time slot so we can clean up before the next scheduled party.
We truly believe that having your birthday celebration here with us will provide the thrill of a lifetime for your child - to be thoroughly remembered for years.
Inclement weather won't stop the fun. We have game tables, train tables, coloring tables and bubble table to intrigue the youngsters. The children will have a "blast" and you "older folk" will too ;-) NOTE: We do secure the trolleys when a lightning storm is imminent, for everyones safety, but we will release them for travel once the storm has passed.
You won't get more fun or uniqueness anywhere else on a dollar for dollar basis. Give us a try - you'll be delighted that you did.
Remember too, as a non-profit organization, your money goes right back into the support of the museum. You will be helping to keep a piece of Connecticut history alive and vibrant as you totally enjoy yourselves!
