Model Railroad Garden 'Landmarks of America'

Saturday May 13, 2017 -
Sunday October 29, 2017

Times: Sunday-Saturday: 10am-5pm

Gather the family together for a remarkably fast tour of the United States when the Model Railroad Garden: Landmarks of America exhibition opens May 13th. Walk through the 7,500 sq.-foot exhibition and pass by nearly 50 familiar miniature American landmarks, all handcrafted from natural materials. Each season the 17 garden-scale trains travel over 22,000 miles past the landmarks, which are surrounded by carefully planned landscapes of 5,000 plants. This year, the Garden adds the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. and Lumberyard Railroad siding prop. Garden members save $1 on admission.
