The Mayborn Express

All Aboard the Mayborn Express!

December 16th
Polar Poster Please join us at the Mayborn Museum Complex for a jolly day of train-themed Christmas fun on Saturday, December 16th. Your admission includes a viewing of the "The Polar Express" movie, a box lunch, candy train assembly, and seeing our model train exhibit in action.

Tailor your visit by choosing from two showings of "The Polar Express" in the SBC Theater. The first showing begins at 10:30 am and the second begins at 1:30 pm. Lunch will be served at 12:00 pm in the upper café. Box lunches include your choice of sandwich with a drink, chips, pickle, and a festive train cookie. Also beginning at 12:00 pm, children can assemble their very own candy trains in the mezzanine. We will have several candy train models on display for the kids see, but we will encourage them to use their own creativity. They will enjoy taking them home to add their own touch to your holiday decorations. Model Train

You'll also want to watch our model train exhibit that is sure to please all ages. Operating layouts of eight scale model train sets will be on exhibit thanks to the Central Texas Area Model Railroaders. The models will include elaborate scenes of bridges and trestles, cities and towns, and depict both the past and present. The models range in size from a Z scale-which is the smallest commercially available model railway at a ratio of 1:220-to a G scale, more commonly referred to as garden railways at a ratio of 1:24. The trains will run from 10 am to 5 pm and depart from the Anding Traveling Exhibits Gallery. Just follow the flashing signal lights to the train displays!

Ticket prices for all these activities are $9 for members, $14 for adult non-members, and $12 for child non-members. This event is by reservation only and the RSVP deadline is Wednesday, December 13th. Please contact Sherri Jurls at 254-710-1108.

This event is sure to sell out fast! Buy your all-access ticket to a fun-filled day of holiday trains while they last!
