Family Second Saturday and Sunday: All Aboard!

Trains have been vital to opening Idaho to the world. From the first railways in the 1870s to today, railways have been crucial to moving goods and people across the state and to other parts of the country.

Join us on February 11th and 12th for a weekend dedicated to trains! Enjoy the model train show and see 4 different model railroads setup by the Train Collectors of America, Rocky Mountain Hi-Railers, and the Caldwell Model Railroad Club. Create your own train themed artwork or complete an exhibit scavenger hunt for a prize.*

All ages are welcome!

*Access to the model train show will be free. Museum admissions and activities are not included with the train show. Purchase museum admission in advance or pay at the door.
