TCAN: Night Train Exhibit

Date of Event: 
Dec 30 2017 - 5:30pm

A children-friendly event sponsored by the Princeton Club of Minnesota. Adults $10, children under 5 free.

For kids and kids at heart! The Model Railroad Museum's Night Train Exhibit is a magical depiction of a winter-shrouded village. The lights are turned down, the buildings and street lights glow warmly, setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains. The make-believe town of Matlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the Museum the layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.
