This event has passed.

Olbrich Botanical Gardens | 3330 Atwood Ave. Madison, WI
@ 10:00 am - @ 4:00 pm

This year, Olbrich’s Holiday Express model trains will be winding through our state’s scenic countryside, exploring all of Wisconsin’s homegrown goodness!

Think quaint dairy farms, shady ginseng fields, crimson cranberry bogs, and vibrant farmers’ market stands. All together, they’ll form a tapestry of taste and color across the state. From Kenosha to Superior, Platteville to Pembine, we’ll be celebrating an abundant Wisconsin Homegrown Holiday!

Closes at 2 p.m. December 24

Closed all day December 25


Admission is inclusive of all indoor attractions, including the Holiday Express Train Show and tropical Bolz Conservatory. No advance tickets necessary.

The outdoor gardens are free for all guests to enjoy and feature winter interest container arrangements.

During the show, members of the Wisconsin Garden Railway Society come from all over the state to show off their large-scale model trains. Depending on the day, you might see a bullet train, steam train, Santa train, circus train, or freight train.
