The Northern Michigan Railroad Club, City of Traverse City, and the Great Lakes Children’s Museum are pleased to announce there will be a Festival of Trains for 2016. The Festival starts December 14 and runs through December 31 at the Carnegie Building (Crooked Tree Arts Center) at 322 Sixth Street in Traverse City.

Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm, Sunday, Noon to 4 pm with special hours of 10 am to 2 pm on December 24 and December 31. The Festival will be closed on December 25.

Admission is $5 per person (4 and under free). Festival Household Passes which allow for unlimited entry for two adults and children all living in the same household are also available. Festival Household Passes can be purchased in advance for $25.00 through a web link on greatlakeskids.org\trains. Household passes purchased at the door are $30.00.

Groups of 10 students or more (and their chaperones) are welcome – reservations are required in advance. Information on scheduling reservations can be found online at greatlakeskids.org\trains. Volunteers are needed for all days. Information on volunteering and an online sign up can also be found on the web site.

Proceeds from this special event will help support the long term, strategic vision of the Great Lakes Children’s Museum- and allow it to continue to provide the free and discounted admissions given to some of our community members who need it most -our military, at-risk and lower income families.
