Whistlestop Weekend

“We don’t stop playing with trains because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing with trains!” - Dr. Jack Fisher

31st Annual Whistlestop Weekend

November 18 - 19, 2017

Join in on the annual celebration of our All Aboard for Trains! exhibition that heralds the start of the holiday season at Adventure Science Center! For this weekend only, you can experience our model train extravaganza with a dizzying array of model railroads on a variety of scales that delight both young and old.


    Examine an interactive model of a four stroke engine to learn more about how basic combustion engines work. You’ll also experience an up close look at a lawn mower engine and get a better idea of what powers the vehicles that help us get a job done!
    Using blocks and wheels, design and create your dream railroad car! Once the car is built, test the car on a gravity powered track in an attempt to build the furthest traveling car.
    Learn how electricity moves down a track with this fun and exciting lab! Using snap circuits and light bulbs, complete a series of electrifying challenges.
