This is wonderful place for children, my kids are 1 and 4 years old they are a little bit too small for the museum house but the train part, they were enjoy wooden train track, magnetic trains, hook-on trains, lot of cars, ambulances, tunnels, bridges, lego trains, engineers costume, chefs costume with abundant of cooking toys, crayon, coloring books, story books. By the way museum house is wonderful with hands on things like, beans to weights on sliding scale, coloring pages/books, crayons, chalks with boards, maps, globes, maze game, other games and all kind of interesting stuff like cashier, manual calculator, and most of all, there were running by wonderful ladies, one is Luis if I did not spell wrong but the 2 others, I forgot to ask theirs name. They all are so kind and fun, they all are friendly, informative, and make you feel so welcome. :) And by this fall, there will be a fountain play, could not wait!!!! If you come by here, dont forget to swing by griffin park, and every Thursday all summer long there will be shows on stage Gaithersburg pavilion, near by there is Fire Museum which will only open on Saturday. And dont forget to check out Constitution garden park.
The Community Museum has some much to offer in the middle of historic Gaithersburg. The museum had an interactive play space where kids and adults can relive selling train tickets or sending telegrams, or do a scavenger hunt and win prizes. The caboose is converted into a playroom with wooden trains for the younger kids (and dads). There is a Budd car converted into Museum space that is perfect for watching the MARC and cargo trains go by without the noise.
Small museum but with a lot of history. My kids love this place. The firefighters are wonderful with the kids. I recommend this place. Its free but please leave a donation.
Came to the Train Day at Gaithersburg. Kenrlands Acoustic Jam was playing. They really made morning thoroughly enjoyable.

A little bit of local history which is nice. They do have storytime for kids (at a small cost)
