Gingerbread Express Model Trains
Winter holiday trains are coming to the Wenham Museum! Our exclusive, holiday-themed train exhibit includes the beloved annual favorite “Snow Train to Bakersville” layout, complete with its wonderful, ice skating “Peanuts” characters, as well as a large, G Gauge “Garden Train” layout – a classic style layout given to countless generations of kids during the holidays.
As always, there will be plenty to do and see: climb aboard a kid-sized train, take the Seek ‘n Find challenge to search out tiny details, and go around the corner to explore the history of the ice industry – including our kid-sized ice house and ice blocks – that created the need for the real trains in Wenham that inspired our collection of models.
