The train ride will be decorated for Halloween, with music to match. There will be a Halloween themed scavenger hunt for families, and treat bags with take home coloring sheets for the kids.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Experience a fun-filled family day at the museum!  Your admission ticket allows access to the museum grounds to enjoy the creativity of our community as you experience handcrafted scarecrow displays scattered throughout the site. Visitors will delight in discovering and voting for their own personal favorites!  Families will receive a scavenger hunt and a discovery map to help them explore the museum exhibits featuring trains, airplanes, automobiles, trucks, and more. Hayrides are included in the price of admission and each paying child will receive a coloring sheet, temporary tattoo, and treat bag.

Family-friendly costumes are encouraged, with costume contests on Saturdays at 11 am and 2 pm and on Sunday at 2 pm. Plenty of fall photo-ops will be available throughout the museum grounds.

Visitors can take a ride on the museum passenger train decorated for Halloween.  Space is limited and visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.  Also offered for this event will be a Caboose Train ride pulled by the Jeddo Coal #85 steam locomotive (October 23 and 30, only).  The Caboose Train will be an additional $10 charge per person (ages 3 and up) and can be added prior to check out. Space is very limited.   For a small additional charge of $1, paid at the museum, you can ride on the 1924 turntable, the centerpiece of railroad operations at the largest remaining roundhouse in North America.
