Get whisked away into the whimsical world of Toy Trains and enjoy the 15th year of this beloved annual pop-up exhibit at the MAH.

Members of the Golden State Toy Train Operators will be on hand to once again share their amazing collection of toy trains through the windows of the MAH’s atrium. Watch from outside in the Secret Garden as the trains chug through the festive beach town in this new “storefront display." This year will look a little different, but we’re excited to continue this holiday tradition safely for both you and the Train Operators.

First things first, we encourage you to be and stay safe. We are still living during a pandemic and needing to follow shelter-in-place orders. When outside, please stay at least 6-feet distance and wear a mask.
