About Holiday Train Show

Since 1992, the Holiday Train Show has been chugging along at the New York Botanical Garden, becoming a beloved holiday tradition for all ages. See the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and outdoor gardens transform into a model city, complete with an outdoor mountainscape, scale models of famous NYC landmarks, and of course, more than 25 model trains in motion.

This stunning indoor-outdoor exhibit also includes access to a guided Tram Tour of the garden's grounds, activities in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, and more. Buy nighttime tickets to experience both the Holiday Train Show and NYBG Glow, the garden's seasonal display of light installations, artwork, food and drink vendors, and more. Select Bar Cart Nights are reserved for 21+ patrons, but all other nights allow visitors of all ages to experience everything the famed Bronx gardens have to offer this season.

Holiday Train Show highlights

This beloved holiday tradition shows no signs of slowing to a stop. Climb aboard and discover why the Holiday Train Show is unlike any other seasonal event.

  • Buildings meet botany. Leaves, seeds, and other parts of the Botanical Garden's many plants are used to recreate over 200 New York City buildings.
  • Get the most out of the gardens. The Holiday Train Show is the perfect opportunity to see not just the seasonal exhibit, but the year-round beauty of all the plants in the gardens themselves.
  • The show has lots of history. The same company, Applied Imagination, has created the Train Show every year since 1992, and they always include something new each season. Their work, which features replicas of trains and buildings dating back to the 1800s, encompasses centuries of NYC history, too.
