Let’s Play Railway!
Kids can enjoy a pretend ride on Let’s Play Railway! Activities in the exhibit’s engine, cattle wagon and caboose promote early math and literacy and encourage children to solve problems and interact with others as they communicate, share and take turns.
- Climb in theengine cab to operate levers, dials, cranks and buttons that trigger realistic sound effects and create music on the cow catcher xylophone
- Operate the kid-powered crankshaft with moving pistons, and solve puzzles in the wheels of the cars
- Sing along to Old MacDonald, harvest corn and tend to the pretend cow and pony in the cattle wagon
- Take a turn in the roly-poly wheel and guide golf balls down a pretend track from station to station in the caboose
- Enjoy play tables with open-ended train building sets and read train-themed stories in the book nook
