Be the first aboard to “Explore the Rails!” We’re offering a sneak-peek at the new traveling exhibit AND new Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails play space in the museum. Suit up as the conductor and sell tickets to ride the train; help Percy fix his wobbly wheel; and climb inside Thomas’s cab to explore the engine’s inner workings, all before everyone else! A special thank you goes out to Norfolk and Portsmouth Beltline Railroad for their local support.

Stop by Toddler Tracks where kids play inside and around an interactive train engine, build their own tracks, or have fun using the multi-level train table.
