More About Model Railroad Garden - Open Daily

Train and garden enthusiasts, young and old, return year after year for the delightful sights and sounds of the miniature trains traversing high and low through tunnels, across bridges, and past replicas of American landmarks; don't miss 26 new replicas of roadside attractions from across the U.S., added for the 2023 season only. All landmarks are intricately handcrafted with natural materials, including twigs, bark, leaves, acorns, and pebbles.

The garden-scale trains are 1/29th the size of life-size trains. More than 5,000 tiny trees, shrubs, ground covers, and flowering plants of 300 varieties re-create the topographical landscape of America.

OPEN - 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. daily
