Members-Only Preview: Holiday Train Show®

November 21, 2017

10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition showcases Midtown Manhattan, with iconic skyscrapers and other architectural wonders sharing the spotlight among old and new collection favorites that define this celebrated district.

Members can view the Holiday Train Show® for free every day throughout the exhibition, but reserving timed-entry tickets are required for all events. It is recommended that you reserve in advance, as tickets do sell out. Tickets can be reserved in advance online.
