Rainy day? Too cool to play outside? A visit the Creation Station at the Museum of Transportation is a great option for such days!
There are three sessions Monday through Wednesday; 9:15 am, 10:30 am (this is the busiest session and sell out the most) and 11:45 am. On Thursday, there is an additional session at 1 pm and on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s of the month there are sessions at 11:15 am, 12:30 pm, 1:45 pm and 3 pm.
We typically attend the first session starting at 9:15 am as this time doesn’t usually sell out. (Artive at 9 am and get tickets as soon as they open)
There is a board near the entrance that shows sold out sessions, so I suggest driving around the circle before parking to avoid a major meltdown from the kids. (Not a pretty sight; it’s been us before)
When your session begins you will be greeted by Linda, the woman who runs the run. She is a very nice woman who loves to chat.
The walls of the Creation Station are covered in an amazing mural! It makes the whole atmosphere so cheery!
We love pairing a visit to the Creation Station with a ride on the miniature train afterwards! All in all, a great option to take kids of all ages!
