Holiday Toy Trains Return to BCM
Seasonal Exhibits and Events Begin November 13
Three decades of Christmas customs and family fun resume at Behringer-Crawford Museum on Saturday, November 13 with the opening of 2021 Holiday Traditions@BCM, sponsored by Central Bank, featuring the museum's beloved Holiday Toy Trains.
Eight O-gauge Lionel model trains will circle 250 feet of track, passing miniature cities, farms and snow-covered fields. Thirty moving displays will allow guests to activate landmarks along the way, including a bus station, fast food restaurant, drive-through car wash and a firehouse with a firefighter sliding down a pole, plus an animated carnival with whirling rides and sideshow barkers. Over the course of the holidays, the trains will travel a distance equal to a trip from the museum to Disney World and back.
Saturday, Oct. 30, 2-4 p.m.
Ghouls, goblins and witches too, NaturePlay@BCM is the place for you!
Join us this Halloween Eve for an evening of family-friendly fun at "Halloween Hoopla" with spooky art, a ghostly puppet performance and a costume parade through the crisp, fallen leaves at BCM.
