Take a ride on our outdoor Miniature Railway!
A favourite among our youngest visitors! This 5-minute miniature train ride allows young and old to live a memorable experience. The train passes over three bridges and through one tunnel.
The Model Train Room
The models displayed, which replicate actual trains and railroads, are the result of a combination of several talents: much like engineers, model railroaders design these miniature layouts to include structures, rolling stock, buildings and even landscapes. Their unparalleled craftsmanship brings this exhibition to life!
