CINCINNATI — All aboard!

The Duke Energy Holiday Trains exhibit, one of Cincinnati’s most beloved holiday traditions, will open at the Cincinnati Museum Center on Nov. 13.

The train exhibit is part of the museum’s Holiday Junction event, which will also feature a light and Lego display, an interactive storybook and even a visit from Santa.

The Duke Energy Holiday Trains have been an iconic holiday display in the Queen City for more than 70 years; they first debuted Downtown in 1946. The intricate display features more than 300 rail cars and 60 locomotives.

A no-touch, interactive storybook will tell the history of the Duke Energy Holiday Trains. Guests will be able to turn the pages with just the gesture of their hand.

Another change brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic: Holiday Junction’s riding train will not pull into the station this year.

Guests will be able to see Santa Claus, but they won’t be able to sit on his lap this year. Santa will arrive on Nov. 27.

The Duke Energy Holiday Trains exhibit is included with museum admission.
