If you're looking for a fun seasonal attraction for the holidays, I would definitely recommend 'The Holiday Train Show' over at the New York Botanical Garden. It is the perfect place to bring your little ones or even go with your friends as they have after hour previews called ' Bar Car Nights' (for adults 21 and over.) This version offers alcoholic beverages for the visitors.
I checked this exhibit out last night with my family and my son just loved it! He has been fascinated with trains and cars since he was smaller so it was quite the experience for him. Not only is it cool to see the G- scale model trains, it is all the more fun to see the recreated landmarks they run past.
All recreated from acorns, twigs, bark, berries, and leaves. Landmarks such as the Yankee Stadium, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Brooklyn Bridge, George Washington Bridge and more ! It is quite the scenery! The annual Holiday train show runs up until January 15th, 2018. Check out the NYBG Wesbite for pricing info.
