The Twin Cities Model Railroad Museum in St. Paul will bring back its Night Trains tradition this year, with some changes due to COVID-19.
From Oct. 31 to Feb. 27, visitors to the museum can see first a Halloween theme and then the customary Winter Wonderland model train layout with warm light and Christmas decorations.
The make-believe miniature towns will be covered in snow and will feature models of vintage passenger trains.
Before winter decorations are set up, Night Trains will begin on Halloween with a spooky theme. Costumes are welcome.
With the museum indoors (obviously) it is taking some steps to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19, the risk of transmission from which is higher among indoor crowds.
Advanced ticket sales are required for Night Trains due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A maximum capacity of 75 persons will be enforced, and tickets are sold in two-hour blocks, from 3 to 5 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.
Face masks are required to be worn at all times by anyone over the age of 2. You can book your tickets here.
