Climb aboard for Train Day at Childrens Museum

The Children's Museum in Terre Haute, Ind., celebrates model railroads
All aboard for family fun at Train Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at Terre Haute Children’s Museum.

A variety of intricate, operating model train railroads will be on display throughout the museum at 727 Wabash Ave. Layouts will include model trains of all sizes with detailed scenery, realistic figures and elaborate structures.

A kids’ activity area will feature a train-themed craft and coloring activities. Kids will be able to express their artistic sides as they color pictures of trains and assemble a take-home train craft. In addition, there will be an advanced scavenger hunt throughout the building for older train enthusiasts and a hide-and-seek activity for younger visitors. Train Day activities are being coordinated by the West Central Indiana Model Railroaders Group and the museum staff.
