The Museum’s stockings are hung by the trolleys with care with the knowledge that Santa Claus will soon be here! Guests will have the opportunity to climb aboard a restored streetcar that will transport them around the museum’s 2 mile track. While aboard, visitors will get to meet Santa Claus and a few of his friends may show up as well! Santa will be happy to have visitors take a picture with him.
After your ride with Santa, take a ride on the Yuletide Shuttle and visit our decorated Wexford station. Make sure to stop by the Museum’s Visitor Center to see the large Lionel toy train layout. Each year the layout changes, so come on down and view the beautiful winter scenery! Visit our Museum Store and grab a few last minute gifts. In the Museum’s Events Room, you will get to view the wonderful LEGO layout built by Steel City LUG, Pittsburgh Area’s Adult LEGO User Group. The holiday spirit will be all throughout the air and your bellies will be filled with complimentary hot chocolate and cookies. After eating your snacks, kids can make a great holiday craft to remember their visit!
This is a rain or shine event. Please note that this event is very popular and we do strongly suggest advance ticket purchases be made online due to the limited seating. Visitors should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before their ticket time.
