Model Railroad Garden

May 8, 2021 - October 10, 2021  10am - 5pm
Chicago Botanic Garden
1000 Lake Cook Rd., Glencoe,
(847) 835-5440

Train and garden enthusiasts, young and old, return year after year for the delightful sights and sounds of the miniature trains traversing high and low through tunnels, across bridges, and around buildings. All are intricately handcrafted with natural materials, including twigs, bark, leaves, acorns, and pebbles. More than 5,000 tiny trees, shrubs, ground covers, and flowering plants of close to 300 varieties re-create the topographical landscape of America. Vignettes of tiny people and animals give the exhibit a storybook feel, while sound effects and a working geyser capture visitors’ imaginations. The 7,500-square-foot Model Railroad Garden features trains running on 1,600 feet of track. The garden-scale trains are 1/29th the size of life-size trains. 


Admission Fee Adults: $8 Seniors: $7 Children (3 – 12): $6 Children (2 and under): Free.
