The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) announces that until November 1, tickets to the upcoming Holiday Train Show® and Bar Car Nights will be available at 30 percent off regular prices for NYBG’s All-Garden Pass.
This year’s Holiday Train Show will showcase Central Park—with its landscape fashioned in mosses and hollies—in the 28th year of this much-loved holiday event.
Visitors to New York City can explore the actual Central Park in Manhattan and then take a 20-minute train ride on Metro-North Railroad to NYBG, entering a miniature wonderland as model trains zip through an enchanting display of more than 175 New York landmarks, each re-created from natural materials such as birch bark, lotus pods, acorns, and cinnamon sticks.
Discounted tickets are available at nybg.org/holiday30 using the code HOLIDAY30. During this limited-time offer, NYBG Members, who receive All-Garden Pass access as part of their membership, can save even more on Holiday Train Show and Bar Car Nights tickets for friends—50 percent off, using the discount code MEMBER50 at the link above.
The Holiday Train Show opens to the public on Saturday, November 23, 2019, and runs through Sunday, January 26, 2020. On select evenings, Bar Car Nights will offer after-dark viewing of the exhibition for adults 21 and over, along with food, specialty cocktails, live entertainment, and more.
New replicas of Central Park’s iconic architectural treasures will include Belvedere Castle, the Dairy, the Old Bandstand, the Angel of the Waters sculpture atop the Bethesda Fountain, and two graceful pedestrian bridges. They will be arrayed in a tableau with existing Central Park replicas in NYBG’s collection, including the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater. In addition, famous New York buildings that are either adjacent to the park or just inside it will be on display, including the Plaza Hotel, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Rose Center for Earth and Space, part of the American Museum of Natural History.
This year, the Holiday Train Show will be presented in an immersive indoor winter wonderland adjacent to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory as the Conservatory’s palm dome undergoes restoration, part of the routine maintenance and operations of the Botanical Garden’s facilities. The spacious, climate-controlled exhibition space will be located on the Conservatory Lawn.
The New York Botanical Garden is a museum of plants located at Bronx River Parkway (Exit 7W) and Fordham Road. It is easy to reach by Metro-North Railroad, bus, or subway.
