November 15, 2013: Iron Horse Hobby Train Display Now on View
Nothing sets the Holiday mood and a child’s imagination in motion like a classic layout of model railroad trains. And on display now, you can visit our Auditorium during regular Museum hours and see a fascinating classic G-Scale display featuring two trains running simultaneously, courtesy of Iron Horse Hobby House, Reading, Pa. It’s included in your Museum admission fee (Members free!) and will be on display through mid-January, 2014.
November 24, 2013: Holiday poinsettias, fresh from The Museum's own greenhouse!
It's that time of year again! Iron Horse Hobby trains will be on display in our Auditorium, and, beginning this week, our very own home-grown poinsettia plants will be on sale in the Atrium.
In your Thanksgiving holiday travels, be sure to stop by The Museum Shop and pick up a beautiful plant (or two — or more!), grown from seed in our very own greenhouse! Each plant is vibrant and full, planted in an 10-inch container, and makes a great gift at $25.
Take one along to your next holiday gathering — it's a perfect Thanksgiving Day centerpiece! Proceeds benefit The Museum's Arboretum programs. And, if you're a Museum Member, you'll get 10% off your purchase (on this and all Museum Shop merchandise).
While you're here, be sure to check out all the other unique items in our Shop, including handcrafted items by local and regional artisans, and special gifts you'll find nowhere else. We're on the ground floor, main entrance and open Museum Hours: Daily 11-5 (closed December 24 and 25 and January 1, open December 31 from 11-4). No admission fee to Shop.
