FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Museum and History Center is hosting lenticular artist Miggs Burroughs. 

Burroughs combines past and present images of landmarks around Fairfield and his work is set to be on display at the museum through Feb. 18. The exhibit, "Fairfield: Back & Forth," features Burroughs' best work and allows "viewers to walk through time without taking a step."  

The Museum is also continuing its "Holiday Express Train Show" through Jan. 5. Residents are invited to come watch the engines chug along through miniature villages and a scenic wintry wonderland. The exhibit features a different theme each weekend. The theme for the Dec. 21 weekend is Modern-era European Trains with the Pennsylvania Railroad featured on Dec. 28 and circus trains featured on Jan. 4.

The Holiday Express Train Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays. The exhibit has special hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Dec. 23 to 31 but is closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day. 

The exhibit is presented by members of the Housatonic Model Railroad Club and Connecticut G-Scalers Club, as well as Hobbytown. Fairfield: Back & Forth is made possible through the support from the Betty R. and Ralph Sheffer Foundation.

The Fairfield Museum & History Center is located at 370 Beach Road in Fairfield.
