Every year, Pacific Science Center hosts the Model Train Show over MLK weekend. This year, they celebrate the 40th year. For children, large and small, there is something magical about seeing these mini worlds recreated with care from a time long since gone. It brings together the sub culture of model train enthusiasts and supplements it with other activities as well as all the permanent exhibits that the science center has to offer. So come with your childlike wonder and enjoy!
The price is $18 but if you enjoyed the world of model trains as a child, this is something worth checking out once ! The event starts on Saturday the 18th and goes through Monday the 20th (10 a.m.-6 p.m.). The museum is very busy during the event so be prepared to be there all day to truly enjoy getting up close with all the train models that will be throughout the museum (Building 4 and Ackerley Gallery will have a majority of the layouts).
