Full Steam Ahead: Train Workshop

It’s FULL STEAM AHEAD at Knock Knock this Holiday Season. Toy trains and the holidays seem to go hand-in-hand and to celebrate Knock Knock is hosting a very special train exhibit and workshop. Our Full Steam Ahead: Train Workshop features exciting train-related activities and real working model trains running throughout Knock Knock’s lobby. This magnificent train collection was donated to Knock Knock in memory of Gordon A. Pugh, so it could be shared with the children of the Capital Region.

Your family will be amazed as the Knock Knock Express whizzes past small towns, farms, and big cities. Who know’s, it might even make a few special stops along the way.

Along with experiencing the splendor of these grand model trains, our Full Steam Ahead: Train Workshop incorporates hands-on imaginative and creative activities specially designed by our Learning Innovation Team for children ages 4-8. Your little ones will become official Knock Knock Train Engineers by making their own engineer hat. They will also design and create a one-of-a-kind train car using recycled materials.

We will have four sessions of our Full Steam Ahead: Train Workshop: Thursday, Dec. 3, 10, and 17, and Jan. 7 at 6pm. Each session is limited to 30 people total (children and adults).

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind train experience the whole family will enjoy.

NOTE: THE MAIN MUSEUM IS STILL CLOSED DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS. FULL STEAM AHEAD IS LIMITED TO THE LOBBY, MULTI-PURPOSE ROOM, AND OUR BIG BACK YARD.
