All Aboard! Trains at Science Park

Temporary Exhibit

The Museum’s seasonal tradition continues with All Aboard! Trains at Science Park, our fun-for-all-ages temporary exhibit featuring classic winter landscapes and a hint of nostalgia. Miniature trains, snow-covered peaks, engaging activities, and even a few surprises await! Experience a whimsical setting where powered model trains at different scales run through various colorful scenes, complete with intricately created décor, buildings, and even people. You can also check out smaller wooden train tables where you and your group can move trains by hand and around different layouts and curves.

Developed by expert train model makers who spent hours creating tiny trees and adjusting tracks to create an unforgettable Boston experience (including miniature versions of the Museum, Custom House, and now, the city’s iconic Zakim bridge, created by master model maker John Goodson of The Mandalorian fame), this exhibit is a great way to welcome the winter season with your friends and family! Presented in English and in Spanish.

There is an audio version of the printed label text and brief audio descriptions of the pieces in this temporary exhibition. Explore audio recordings.

This exhibit was made possible through a collaboration with the Hub Division, Inc., of the Northeast Region (NER) of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA).
