The Museum can’t let this year go by without having model trains! This holiday season they will be combined with our ever popular Christmas Memories exhibit.
The 2020 holiday exhibit will bring several favorites back to the Museum. Model trains, including the Polar Express and Christmas trains, will appear. These are a delight to observe for young and old. Models of local historical buildings will be set up, including the Tassajara School, Danville Hotel, San Ramon General Store and SP Railroad Depot. New this year is a model of the New England Presbyterian Church which sat on Front Street from 1875 until it burned down in 1932. There will also be a display of rocking horses.
Christmas will be celebrated with Santa and his reindeer sailing around the ceiling, and a moving Ferris wheel and carousel. The Oak Tree Lighting will be honored with the Father Christmas outfit which was worn by Carmine DeVivi who was the original Father Christmas.
