Choo choo! Everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving weekend tradition will be back! The 43rd Annual Model Railroad Show presented by Dominion Energy is a great time for family and friends to make memories and discover that science is everywhere – even in model trains!

43rd Annual Model Railroad Show presented by Dominion Energy
Friday, November 27 – Sunday, November 29
The tradition of the Model Railroad Show continues, but there will be some changes to help ensure the safety of Museum guests, volunteers and staff.

All tickets – including member tickets – must be pre-purchased online or by phone. No walk-up tickets will be available.
All guests age 5 and older are required to wear a mask while at the Museum (recommended for guests ages 3 – 4).
To moderate the flow of guests, the Museum is offering timed tickets with pre-reserved entry times and a limited number of tickets available in each entry time.
The Model Railroad Show will be included with Museum admission, which is $15.50 for adults, $13.50 for youth and seniors and $10 for preschool-age children. Museum members and children two and under are admitted free. The Museum offers discounts for military, teachers and EBT cardholders.

Tickets will go on sale November 10, 2020 so mark your calendar!
