Opening Day of Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails

Sat Sep 21, 2019
Free with Exhibit Halls admission

Explore the sights and sounds of the Island of Sodor with Thomas and his friends in a family-friendly adventure designed for young learners ages 2 to 7 (and their grownups).

Climb inside Thomas's cab, fix Percy's wobbly wheels, and pull levers for train noises. As kids move throughout the space, they'll help Thomas and his friends solve a variety of challenges, ranging from simple sorting and shape identification to more complicated engineering obstacles.

This exhibit is an ideal combination of play opportunities and science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. It will be open through June 2020.
