Salt domes, wetlands and prairies are all featured in the model display, along with the Texas Coast and national monuments like Enchanted Rock, and parts of Big Bend National Park. The trains also pass through models of big cities including Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Galveston, and of course, Houston! There are also other surprises nestled along the trains’ routes, making for a fun learning opportunity for kids and adults, alike.
This exhibit, just one of many at the museum, is being provided by the Carruth Foundation, Inc. and also Glen A. Rosenbaum.
Prices for admission are $25 for adults, or $15 for children or seniors, those 62-years-old and over. Member tickets, however, are free!
