Model Train Exhibit
JUL 12, 2014 – MAR 29, 2015
All Aboard is a delightful exhibit featuring model trains rolling over 100 feet of railroad track past scenes of an imaginary seaside village. Each scene is amazingly detailed and realistic. The exhibit also has displays on the basics of model railroading, how to build railroad scenes, and popular model scales common to the hobby. Members of the Central Georgia Model Railroad Club in Macon, Georgia, built these sets from scratch. Orginally built for an exhibition at Hartsfield – Jackson International Airport, this HO scale model train exhibit has toured Georgia, stopping at several other museums, including Tellus in 2009. Due to the popularity of the exhibit, we are bringing it back for an extended stay.

The activities are fun for children and adults. Visitors are invited to engage in a variety of experiences like attempting to loop the loop with a rolling ball. Kids, teachers, and families will find Roll, Drop, Bounce to be a fun and meaningful exhibit.
