‘Tis the season for celebration at the Science Museum of Virginia! The Museum invites guests of all ages to experience a beloved holiday tradition at the 42nd Annual Model Railroad Show, presented by Dominion Energy. Come explore the historic Broad Street Station turned museum and celebrate a history of innovation through interactive experiences.

This year’s Model Railroad Show features fan-favorite events such as trackless train rides on the Teddy Bear Express, Clydesdale horses, blacksmith demonstrations and so much more! And of course, the Model Railroad Show wouldn’t be complete without an exceptional collection of intricate model train layouts with scaled locomotives riding through lush landscapes and miniature cities. Guests can also take in a guided train tour of the Museum’s luxurious Car ONE and step inside other historic, vintage train cars, which open exclusively during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The trains may be tiny, but the fun is huge! Don’t miss a decades-long holiday tradition that will create lasting memories for the whole family.

The Model Railroad Show takes place November 29 – December 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. A detailed schedule of daily activities will be posted at closer to the event. Activities are included with Museum admission, which is $15.50 for adults, $13.50 for youth and seniors, and $10 for preschool age children. Children 2 and under are free.
