Many visitors come here to experience the magical Polar Express train ride, which is based on the popular book and movie of the same name. It’s certainly one of the best things to do in Bryson City in Fall and the holiday season!
Each Holiday Season they transform the train into a magical Polar Express Journey to the North Pole to meet Santa. The 1¼ hour round-trip passenger excursion helps you relive the magic of this classic Christmas story.
The museum houses the largest collection of Lionel trains with over 7,000 pieces of locomotives, rolling stock, trackside details and accessories. Some pieces date back to 1918 and are displayed in enclosed floor to ceiling wall length cases.
