We’re chugging full steam ahead with our train-tastic event, the Great Train Days. This event is perfect for kids of all ages. Explore our train-themed exhibits and get ready to choo-choo-choose your favorite locomotive activity. Come view model trains and meet our neighborhood train experts, including the Redwood Empire Garden Railway Society and Coastal Valley Lines. Your little conductor can even build their own train tracks, dance to train music, or take a ride on the Live Steamers train!
