All Aboard The Polar Express! Hop on board for your new favorite holiday memory! The annual holiday train ride tradition returns to the North Carolina Transportation Museum this winter! You won't believe your eyes when you see that the Museum has transformed into the setting of the classic holiday film, The Polar Express.  


Passengers of all ages will enjoy the magical train ride to the North Pole to visit Santa. Families are encouraged to wear pajamas on their 70-minute train ride, which will be filled with caroling, dancing and reading of The Polar Express. Family fun and entertainment will be served, along with hot chocolate and cookies. Upon arrival at the North Pole, passengers will watch as Santa presents the first gift of Christmas! On the return trip, all passengers will receive a silver sleigh bell, heard by all who BELIEVE! This enchanted experience will be sure to leave passengers of all ages in the holiday spirit.
