All Aboard! Historic Train Weekend
Courtesy the New York Historical Society Conductor Bob at Historical Train Weekend at the New-York Historical Society
This celebration of all things railroad returns to the DiMenna Children's History Museum, inviting kids to embark on a train-themed scavenger hunt, meet Conductor Abel and decorate their own train car. The highlight will be an impressive collection of eye-popping toys including hand-crafted model trains, stations, sheds, bridges, tunnels, carousels and Ferris wheels in the Holiday Express installation (on display Oct 30 through Feb 28), spread across the first floor of the New-York Historical Society. Transformed with theatrical lighting, an audio "soundscape," and other visual effects, the setting and nineteenth-century toy figurines placed throughout will come to life right before your family's eyes. Ages 3 to 6.
