Train Day Celebration
May 12, 2018, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 13, 2018
Join DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) for a special Train Day Celebration. In addition to visiting DCM Express, the Museum’s new pop-up train experience, children can get an up-close look at a model train. Scouts from Venture Crew 57 will be on-site to show off their impressive model train and answer questions. Young train enthusiasts can also create art with ink pads and train wheels, enjoy special additions to existing exhibits including Zip Tracks and train cars in Ramps & Rollers, as well as Bricks & Wheels in Unit Blocks. Train-themed story time will take place at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 12 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 13. This is your ticket to fun – catch the train before it leaves the station!
