polar expressExperience 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 Sept 1) are $25.00 per person (children under 2 Free with a paying adult) and includes cookies, hot chocolate and a special gift.  

Admission includes a twilight train ride (antique equipment & weather permitting) on our park train as well as the opportunity to explore the museum. Matinee attendees are free to enjoy both before or after the movie, evening (5:30 and 6pm tickets) are asked to arrive early to enjoy the museum and ride the train ahead of the show.

  1. How long does the train ride take. My family is looking at the 330 movie time so what time would we be able to do the train ride

    • The train ride is around 15 minutes long. The tickets for Polar Express Experience also allow you to explore the entire museum so we recommend allocating at least an hour to explore. You could come early, or stay after the movie.

  4. We very much appreciate your support and are sorry the event sold out this year.

    Compared to 2015, we added 6 additional shows, 240 seats increasing our capacity by 50%. The volunteers in charge are already looking to see how we might increase again in 2017.

    Please consider our other Christmas events this year.

    • Weather permitting yes, a good percentage of children wear PJ’s to the show. Keep in mind that outside the Polar movie screening cars, a large amount of the museum is not climate controlled.
