The New York Botanical Garden’s Holiday Train Show returns for its 30th year! For 2021, a new replica of the LuEsther T Mertz Library Building takes its place among the classic NYC landmarks—all presented in a uniquely immersive special exhibition space in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

As always, model trains zip through more than150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials. G-scale locomotives hum along among familiar sights- including the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center - on nearly a half-mile of track.

Reserve in advance - it's been known to sell out.
