Cincinnati Museum Center’s Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains is one of the region’s most beloved holiday traditions. Every holiday season, Cincinnatians welcome out of town family and friends home with visits to Union Terminal, a tradition that brings generations together every year.

The highlight of any holiday visit to CMC is the Duke Energy Holiday Trains, a Cincinnati holiday staple since 1946. More than 300 railcars and 60 locomotives chug through a mini metropolis on 1,000 feet of track. Track-level views reveal the intricate details of the display, from anxious passengers waiting to board, to homes with detailed interiors and businesses with bustling storefronts. Grandparents and grandchildren share the starry-eyed wonderment of falling in love with the elaborate display, some for the first time, others for the 70th time or more.

The Duke Energy Holiday Trains are surrounded by other incredible train layouts, some dating back to 1904. Other displays from the 1930s and 1960s provide a dynamic snapshot of toys over the decades as they click along metal tracks once again.

Holiday Junction also includes an interactive winter wonderland where guests can build a snowman, create footprints in the snow and climb aboard a riding train to chug alongside and underneath a snowy garden railway layout. Plus, Brickopolis returns, a gallery of custom-built LEGO creations with delightful surprises tucked into every nook and cranny.
