More Information

The Salem Museum’s popular model train returns for its fifth Christmas season. Jim Burke is back with his vintage American Flyer trains, so popular for the holidays. Travel back in time to visit the charming village of “Plasticville” set in the 1950s and ’60s. In addition to the trains and buildings of all sorts, there’s an interesting cast of little characters playing in the snow. The layout changes every year, so a scavenger hunt will help visitors find all the tiny delights. Kids can blow the whistle! This holiday layout will continue through January, 2022. Masks are recommended for all visitors and required for those who are unvaccinated or attending with a group.
