Holidays at McWane featuring Magic of Model Trains

November 23, 2019 - January 5, 2020

November 23 – January 5

It’s the happiest season of all here at McWane Science Center! Take a slip down the Ice Slide and whoosh through the air on the zip line. Climb aboard the McWane Train and go for a ride before checking out the Magic of Model Trains exhibit.

The Magic of Model Trains is back to delight families throughout the season and spread holiday cheer! Discover trains of every shape and size inside this awe-inspiring exhibit of locomotive displays. No detail is too small for this miniature landscape. From the covered bridges and crowded downtown storefronts to multiple train stations and a drive-in movie theater, the Magic of Model Trains will keep you and your curious little elves entertained for hours!
