Due to concerns over the Covid-19 virus, we are cancelling the March 28th BBQ train and all of our Easter Bunny Eggspress trains for the 2020 season.  We are also closing the museum property to the general public at this time.  We deeply regret any inconvenience, but the health and safety of our guests, staff, crew, and volunteers was utmost when making this decision.  Because of date sensitivity, the Easter Eggspress will not be rescheduled.  Refunds can be expected in 7-10 business days. BBQ Train guests will be called and offered space on a later train or a refund.


We will post here when we reopen.  Thanks for your patience.
