Giveaway: The NY Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show (Family Pack)



The New York Botanical Garden’s annual Holiday Train Show has become a special and memorable experience for all of us. When our kids were babies, their eyes popped out at all the moving trains buzzing around the room.  As toddlers, they started to chase the trains and watch the lights flashing around the room.  Now that they’re officially tweens, they’ll surely look at it through a new lens, more curious about the landmarks represented and how they were made.

The experience is a one and only.  You and your kids will marvel at the charming model trains and New York City landmark replicas, stroll the spectacular grounds, decorate (and eat!) gingersnaps, break for lunch and hot chocolate, and explore other parts of the garden while you’re there.

Within the enchanting setting of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, model trains zip over bridges and past replicas of New York landmarks made of plant parts such as nuts, bark, and leaves. Show favorites include the original Yankee Stadium, Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn Bridge.

This holiday season, The New York Botanical Garden is thrilled to celebrate their 23rd annual Holiday Train Show from November 15th-January 19th. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory plays host to a city in miniature, featuring more than 150 New York landmarks re-created to scale with nuts, bark, leaves, and other plant parts. Step into this annual New York tradition and explore 250 acres of crisp winter landscapes during tours of the Garden’s many collections, experience festive evening events, and take care of your holiday shopping list.

The show is truly a New Yorker’s defining moment, and the experience will just add to the pride that you have in this incredible city that we live in. And now, right here on the Culture Mom, you can enter to win FOUR tickets to the NYC Botanical Garden’s Annual Train Show!

  8. My girls ages 6 & 9 have never been to the train show. They are fascinated in general with building things with any materials they can get their hands on and I know would absolutely LOVE seeing the train show. We have gone to the free train show in the Transit Museum located in Grand Central however from what I hear, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Botanical Gardens show. Please think of us for the give-away!!!!
