Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains

Create a tradition sure to be remembered at Museum Center’s annual celebration of model trains. A four-level layout of simultaneously running trains, two dioramas recreating pages from the Lionel train “wish books,” and a display of some of the oldest model trains ever produced inspire visitors of every age.

Also featured is the Duke Energy Train Display that brought millions of people to 4th and Main in Cincinnati to view this fantasy land in the Duke Energy lobby since 1946. After 65 years of tradition, this imaginative creation has been entrusted to the care and operation of Cincinnati Museum Center and has become a permanent offering of Holiday Junction for future generations to enjoy.

Also included is Toys through Time, featuring toys and games that were played with by generations of Cincinnatians and now reside in Cincinnati Museum Center's History Collections. The gallery showcases a wide variety of children's playthings, including toy trains and a train layout, dolls from the 19th and 20th centuries, children's books, blocks and building toys, mechanical toys, puzzles and sports equipment. Children will enjoy special activities designed just for them, including a journey by train aboard the Holiday Express through an enchanting winter wonderland.

All aboard for family fun! FREE with Admission to Cincinnati History Museum.
