2016 Events at the N.C. Transportation Museum


Nov. 18-19, 25-27, Dec. 2-4, 9-11, 15-22
THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride

Capturing the magic of the Chris Van Allsburg book and runaway hit movie from Warner Bros., THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride features a train ride with dancing chefs, cookies, hot chocolate, and a presentation of the first gift of Christmas—a silver bell for all those who truly have the spirit of the season.  The train ride and associated activities include popular characters from the holiday tale, the conductor, the hobo, the boy in the story, and of course, Santa Claus. The event takes place across the museum’s 60 acre site, with Reindeer Games and entertainment before the ride, s’mores, and our post-ride children’s play area, “Candy Cane Lane.”




Dec. 27 - 31
Winter Fever Train Rides
The museum offers special train rides between the Christmas and New Year holidays. Join us for rides each day at 10:30, 11:30, 1:30 and 2:30.
