This special night is just for you, our members!

The Model Train Festival has been a winter tradition bringing families and communities together for a quarter of a century. We look forward to welcoming you to enjoy the marvelously detailed train layouts throughout the museum, talk with the train clubs, and explore the exhibitions at this member-exclusive event. As part of the celebration, you’ll also receive a special travel-related craft that will spark intergenerational conversation, a commemorative poster, and a train festival button! We will also offer lively, staff-led tours of our newest gallery, 360. The museum’s marmot mascot, Seymour History, will be there to greet visitors as well!

RSVP required. Click the button below to email, or call Camille Perezselsky, Director of Philanthropy, at 253-798-5899.
