Kings Mountain Historical Museum Welcomes the Trains Back!

This year’s exhibit has filled the Kings Mountain Historical Museum with model train displays assembled by local “S” Gaugers, as well as railroad memorabilia, and antique toys and games. Visitors of all ages will be enchanted as they explore the miniature snow-covered scenes that line the tracks, and discover the interactive carousel, hot air balloons, and mailbag pickup. Parents and grandparents will enjoy reminiscing about the toys and games of their childhood.

The exhibit will open to the public on Friday, November 26, 2021, and end on Friday, January 7, 2022. Admission to the museum is always free! Regular hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10am - 4pm. There is a lot going on at the museum this holiday season, so be sure to look on our website and Facebook Page for more details!
