Thomas & Friends

: Explore the Rails

Temporary Exhibit : Open Through January 12, 2020

The world's most famous tank engine is making a temporary stop at the Museum of Science! Explore the sights and sounds of the Island of Sodor with Thomas and his friends in a family-friendly adventure designed for young learners ages 2 to 7 (and their grownups).

Climb inside Thomas's cab, fix Percy's wobbly wheels, and pull levers for train noises. As kids move throughout the space, they'll help Thomas and his friends solve a variety of challenges, ranging from simple sorting and shape identification to more complicated engineering obstacles. This exhibit is an ideal combination of play opportunities and science, technology, engineering, and math concepts.

© 2019 Gullane (Thomas) Limited. Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails was created by Minnesota Children's Museum, presented by Fisher-Price, and sponsored by 3M.
