Families who are looking for a fun outing - and a deal - this holiday weekend can get a discount to the Museum of Transportation from Groupon. There are two options to choose from:

$10 for museum admission and miniature-train ride for two (up to $24 value)

$19 for museum admission and miniature-train ride for four (up to $48 value)

The miniature train ride is fun for younger kids and the museum also offers trolley rides which are included with admission. The museum is known for its car shows, and is hosting the “All Chevy Show” on Sunday, September 7th. With over 190 exhibits, the whole family will have plenty to explore. Young children can also visit the Creation Station, which offers interactive learning and craft activities related to modes of transportation. Each month features a different project; in January children can create miniature home-made sleighs. The cost is $2 per person per 1 hour session in addition to regular museum admission. Your child can also celebrate her birthday at the Creation Station:

“Parties include: 90-minutes of exclusive Creation Station playtime, museum admission, snack sacks, party bags, helium balloon for each child, a special gift for the birthday child, and all paper products. (Our 11:00 party includes an all-beef hotdog for each child guest.)”

September 20 – 21 is Back-Track Weekend, when your child can earn money for his school.

“Encourage your school or non-profit to visit the Museum of Transportation on a Back Track Weekend. We will keep TRACK of your admission, and give BACK 20% of the admission revenue raised from your group.”

The museum also offers the Conductor Club, which is a special treat for any child:

“An exciting way to spend a special day! Your child or grandchild (ages 6 - 8) can be the miniature train “Honorary Conductor” for the day. On their special day, your child will receive a conductor gift, which contains a bandana, a train whistle, four museum tickets, and a museum coloring book. On their designated day, their name will appear on the museum marquee as the Honorary Conductor; they will greet guests from the front seat of the tram; they will help the train engineer check tickets, and yell “All Aboard” each time the train leaves the station during their one hour work shift. When they depart, they will take home a signed picture of the train crew and a Conductor’s Club Certificate. The memories are priceless; the cost is $125.”

Admission to the museum: Adults: $8.00 (13 & older); Children: $5.00 (3-12)
