Take a journey back in time as you peruse this vintage collection of European toys and trains. In the premiere museum exhibition of the Jerni collection, a display of model trains, bridges, carousels and Ferris wheels, as well as the first ever model of an elevated train station, creates a diorama populated by figurines in colorful 19th-century garb. All toys are hand-crafted and hand-painted, giving each piece a unique flair. This year, the display will be transformed with theaterical lighting, and audio "soundscape" and other visual effects, making it seem as though trains are thundering through the museum. All ages.
