Model Train Festival – Tacoma

Starting December 26th, through January 1st, 10am-5pm, the Washington State History Museum is hosting its annual model train festival.  The featured trains range in size from very very small to the kind you can actually ride on.  Local and larger clubs are represented and will show scenes from historic villages to a Playmobil town.

I’ve taken my boys to this for quite a few years.  The conductors are great and very patient with my boys.  They usually have a hands on part for the younger kids to build or play with trains.  I did have to remind my kids frequently to stay behind the ropes so they wouldn’t be tempted to touch.  Little fingers accidentally placed on a track can derail a train in a jiffy if they aren’t paying attention!  So, being careful is good, but it is a blast.

Admission is:
$6/Child (6-17yrs) & Military

If you are going on your birthday entrance is FREE
