Create a Holiday Tradition with Olbrich’s Holiday Express

There are so many things to see and do around the holiday’s, that sometimes we get caught up in the hustle that we need to take the time to enjoy this time with our family. From December 2, 2017, to December 31, 2017, Olbrich Botanical Gardens offers a unique holiday event that will bring the family together called, Olbrich’s Holiday Express.


Olbrich’s Holiday Express displays large-scale model trains that twist and turn through the festive scenery of poinsettias and fresh evergreens. Depending on the day, you may see bullet trains, steam trains, Santa trains, circus trains, or freight trains. This year, Olbrich’s Holiday Express has a Wild West theme. You can find the model trains cruising through a miner’s gold camp and stop off at the Yellow Rose of Texas Saloon. Take a behind the scenes look at Olbrich’s Holiday Express here:


  • $5 for adults
  • $3 for children ages 3 to 12
  • Children 2 and under are free
  • Free for Olbrich Botanical Society members
