All Aboard the Holiday Express!

A Holiday Exhibit for Everyone

Choo Choo! Choo Choo! Jump on board this year for the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula's Annual Holiday Exhibit All Aboard the Holiday Express. Come see our train sets ā€“ old and new, big and small! There will be plenty to see for any train enthusiast young or old!

If the weather isn't too snowy, there will be plenty to do out-and-about on the Historical Museum grounds. Come check out Streetcar #50 in its new building, and say hello to the Missoula Model Railroad Club in the Drummond Depot to see how the professionals build their train models. But the biggest surprise of the day will be Santa at the locomotive! Bring your cameras to get a picture with Santa inside the locomotive, but better be quick; Santa will only be there from 2-3pm. Don't forget your cameras!

To stay warm inside, family activities will include creating your very own miniature train out of sugary treats and designing ornaments to decorate our Christmas tree! This year will feature another "I-Spy" game, so put on your "looking-eyes" and find all those hidden treasures among the trains.

Need a break from all the crafts and activities? Grab a snack and relax for a while and listen to a few Christmas stories at story-time, all train-themed, of course!

Everything happens on Sunday, November 17, 2013 from 1 to 4pm. Admission will be free to all for the day ā€“ but in exchange, please bring a canned good item for the Missoula Food Bank. Come out and be your own conductor here at the Historical Museum at Fort Missoula! Come aboard this year and get the holiday season started off right! Choo Choo!
