The Model Train Festival brings railroad clubs from around Puget Sound to share their incredible, room-sized layouts in the History Museum. Every floor of the museum comes alive with trains, from the Kitsap Live Steamers 7.5-inch gauge railroad engines to the Mount Rainier N-Scale layout featuring miniature scenery of Western Washington and so many more.

Plus, the largest permanent model train layout in Washington is always on display at the museum on the fifth floor, operated by Puget Sound Model Railroad Engineers. Train operators will be on hand for questions and conversations.

Closed Sunday and Monday, Dec. 24 and 25.
