Please note that the museum has shortened hours on days when THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is offered November 10-11, 17-19, 24-26, and December 1-3, 7-10, 12-23.

Museum Hours on THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride days: Tuesdays-Saturdays 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Sundays 12-2:00 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
The regular day-time museum train will not be operating between October 30 and December 25.

The museum will close at 2:00 p.m. on days THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride operates, and all guests will be asked to leave so we are able to prepare for the event. Gates will reopen at 3:00 p.m. for THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride event only, and museum exhibit buildings will be closed. When visiting with small children during the day, we encourage you to avoid the Bob Julian Roundhouse area because a key scene of THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride performance takes place there… we want all of those who BELIEVE to be able to experience the magic during the event.
