Toy Trains

Artboard 1

Friday, December 20, 2019,
10am - 5pm


Experience a mini-universe of model trains that delight the young and young at heart.

Swing by the MAH to hear the roar as the diesel starts up, the blast of the mighty horn, the squeal of the brakes as these tiny trains slow for a curve and the chatter between the engineer and the control tower. This beloved annual pop-up exhibit located inside the MAH's atrium can be enjoyed by the whole family. Members of the Golden State Toy Train Operators will be on hand to help young engineers master controls and answer questions. Plus, bring your own toy train to show off and put it on the track.

Don't forget to enter the raffle when you arrive. You could win your very own model toy train!
