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 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.

How do I buy tickets? I don’t see anywhere to purchase.
Hi… Ticket link is under “website” above… https://southeasternrailwaymuseum.thundertix.com
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.
When will tickets be available? Are they available for 2017?
Polar Express Experience for 2016 is sold out. Tickets for the 2017 season will go on sale around Sept 1, 2017.

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.
I’m so sad this is sold out! We are VERY interested if you end up adding another showing!
Do the kids where pjs?
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.
