Second Thursday Preschool Program – Miniature Trains
May 9 @ 10:20 am - 12:15 pm
Second Thursday Preschooler Event –The second Thursday of each month from 10:30 AM-12:05 PM, we invite you and your preschooler to “get on board” for the Southeastern Railway Museum’s special monthly preschool program!
This is an interactive educational program that allows the parent (or grandparent!) and child to participate together in activities related to the vehicle of the month.
Each month, the program focuses on a different vehicle or method of transportation. There are 5 components to the program that revolve around the vehicle of the month: game, story/song, activity, craft, and when available, the actual “vehicle of the month” for children to see and experience. Each component lasts 15 minutes. The components will be facilitated by the museum’s Education Conductors. Second Thursday is perfect for your 2 to 4-year-old.
In May 2019, we’ll be exploring: miniature trains! Our “park train” was made by the Miniature Train Company in 1957 for the Birmingham Zoo.
The cost is $10 per participating child. One adult is free per participating child; additional adults are $12. To attend, check-in at the ticket counter before 10:20 AM on the second Thursday of any month. The program is limited to the first 75 children participants (and their accompanying adults) and we strongly encourage signing up in advance. Advance ticket sales will cut off at 8 pm the day before (Wednesday night). If the event fills up or sells out online, there will NOT be onsite sales on Thursday. Train rides may be purchased online or when you arrive at the museum. Tickets also include museum admission, so feel free to bring a lunch and explore after the program!
We can’t wait to see you there!
