Season’s Greenings Train Display at the US Botanic Garden


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


From November 22-January 1, 2019, enjoy a model train show as the pint-sized locomotives travel around, above, below, and through plant-based re-creations of iconic train stations from across the United States! Explore classic stations like New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, St. Louis’ Union Station, and many more.

Thousands of blooms will be on display throughout the Conservatory, including a showcase of heirloom and newly developed poinsettia varieties. The Botanical Garden’s collection of DC landmarks made from plant materials will return to fill the Garden Court, including a botanical version of Washington, D.C.’s Union Station.

The United States Botanic Garden is located at 100 Maryland Ave. SW, Washington, DC 20024.
