Everyone's favorite train show is back for its 42nd year: the Model Railroad Show returns to the Science Museum of Virginia the weekend after Thanksgiving!

The three-day event is packed with activities, chief among them different train displays with various scaled locomotives riding through intricate landscapes and miniature cities created by HO, O and N-scale model train enthusiasts from across Virginia.

Guests can explore the inside of the Museum'€™s vintage train cars (which are only open once a year during the Model Railroad Show); take a trackless train ride on the Teddy Bear Express; see Clydesdale horses; watch blacksmiths forge custom metal pieces; watch steam engine demos; build a breath-powered train in the Museum'€™s makerspace, The Forge; and watch '€œRocky Mountain Express'€ on the giant Dome screen.

Plus, guests can explore three floors of interactive exhibits! Don't miss seeing '€œAll Aboard!'€, the Museum'€™s centennial anniversary exhibition featuring photography and artifacts that tell the story of Richmond'€™s booming train station during its years in operation (1919-1975). Also, the "Bionic Me," touring exhibition is on display showcasing inventive and ingenious medical and industrial breakthroughs that have helped humans change the world.
