Experience the movie like never before! Watch the “Polar Express” in an authentic train car. This magical holiday tale tells of a young boy who still wants to believe in Santa even though his friends have “grown out of it”. His faith is rewarded when a steam train pulls up to his house and escorts him to the North Pole to meet Santa. While watching the movie participants will experience some of what is happening on the screen! Tickets (sales start September 5) are $28.00 per person (children under 2 Free with a paying adult – must sit on lap) and includes cookies, hot chocolate and a special gift.
Admission includes a train ride (antique equipment & weather permitting) on one of our trains as well as the opportunity to explore the museum. Late afternoon and evening attendees are asked to arrive early to enjoy the museum before the showing.
