Trains have departed the museum for now! They'll be back this holiday season!

The holiday season is approaching and that means trains are coming back to Adventure Science Center! Since 1986, we have been hosting model trains to dazzle the imaginations of visitors both young and young at heart. Each year, countless hours go into creating and building the trains that our visitors enjoy.

This year, we will have three seperate models for you to discover!

  • G Scale Model Railroad: This is our largest model train at a scale of 1:25. That means it takes 25 model trian boxcars to equal the length of one real train car.
  • O Scale Model Railroad: At a scale of 1:48, this slightly smaller track would require 48 model boxcars to equal the length of one real train boxcar. This track is also home to some recognizable visitors like the Incredible Hulk and Doctor Who's TARDIS!
  • S Scale Model Railroad: Our smallest train set is at a scale of 1:64. That means you'd need to line up 64 of these train cars to span the length of a real train boxcar.

All train displays are included with general admission. Subject to change. Trains are a seasonal offering. Check this page to find when the trains will be arriving for 2020.

Special thanks to our generous patrons Dr. Jack and Rev. Clare Fisher, and Mr. Will Cheek.
