Trains and the Planes at the Museum
Saturday, November 22nd to
Saturday, January 3rd—11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Starting on November 22nd the AMC Museum will welcome the Shoreline Garden Railroad Club back for their fifth annual large scale model train layout inside the main hangar.
Bring the kids of all ages because these are not your typical small size Christmas trains, the locomotives here are can be over 36" long and can weigh upwards of 40 pounds. Garden scale trains are meant to be run outside in large backyard layouts but the AMC Museum has room in the big hangar to let you enjoy them in warmth and comfort rain or shine.
This year's layout will allow the operation of three trains at one time. Volunteers from the club will be happy to explain their hobby to you. And don't forget to visit the museum's newest addition the C-5A Galaxy. Weather permitting the C-5 will be open every Saturday in December from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..
While you are at the museum you can fly one of our flight simulators—for free—and do some Christmas shopping at the Museum Store and check out their special sale items.
The exhibit is sponsored by the AMC Museum Foundation and the Shoreline Garden Railroad Club. The trains run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. until January 3rd.
Santa and the C-5 at the AMC Museum
Saturday, December 6th—11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday, December 13th—11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Again this year, Santa Claus will arrive at the AMC Museum and greet children in the C-5A cargo compartment. Santa will be letting his reindeer take some time off this season as he upgrades his delivery system to America's largest airlifter.
Children will be able to have their picture taken with Santa on Saturday, December 6th and Saturday, December 13th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. aboard the C-5. A donation of $10 for each photo is asked to help keep the entire museum fleet of aircraft shiny and bright. The elves at the museum do all the work but they need paint and polish to do their jobs.
While you're at the museum you can fly one of our free flight simulators and do some holiday shopping in the museum store.
Santa is sponsored by the AMC Museum Foundation.
