Tots love trains, and Habitot’s annual Train Week will thrill all aspiring engineers and conductors, ages 1-6! Throughout the week, visitors can help decorate a giant train sculpture, make their own conductor’s hats, create railroad-track patterned pictures, and paint with wheels in our Art Studio. Children can also ride small-scale locomotives on pretend train tracks throughout the museum.
