Things For Kids to Do at Christmas: Snow and Trains All at McWane's

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Winter Wonderland at McWane Center in Birmingham, Alabama

McWane Center's Winter WonderlandI have never met a kid that wasn't fascinated by snow and trains (not necessarily together).  In Birmingham Alabama, the McWane Center has the best of both worlds with it's Winter Wonderland PLUS The Magic of Model Trains.  There, kids can play in the fluffy artificial snow.  They can ride the rails on the train exhibit.  And on top of that, they can enjoy ice fishing, sock skating, and an incredible giant slide.

It's all happening now at the McWane Center.  The Magic of Model Trains ends January 10, 2013 and The Winter Wonderland ends January 6, 2013.  

You can take the kids (or just yourself) to check out the Winter Wonderland daily from 9am to 6pm.


And besides these 2 events, there are others for this holiday season as well.  There's the Polar Express Pajama Parties through 12/23/2012.  Then you have the Ice Age Exhibit through 12/31/2012.  Heck there are so many, why don't check out The McWane Center calendar of events and take your pick.  See just one or see them all.

McWane Center is located at 200 19th Street North, Birmingham, AL 35203.

Snow is like icing on the cake at Christmas, well especially for kids but I like it too.  Then it can move on out and lets get ready for spring.  Model trains too were a favorite pass time as kid.

It was a lot of fun Edward and Celia.

I'm with you John (except I don't mind if it doesn't show up at all (snow I mean).

Kristine kids and's just something about them.

Me too Cheryl but only in my dreams.

Bob I have to admit, I enjoyed it just as much as my grandson did when he and I went.

Endre I'll take my snow the exact same way that you do.  Cheers and Merry Christmas to you.

I' love to see the Model Trains. I have a really old one my Dad gave me. Since I have not put up a tree in years, it has not been out of the box in years.

Merry Christmas to you too!!!
