Happy Holidays from the New York Botanical Garden

Take a look around BronxMama and you will see what huge fans of NYBG we are. It’s our favorite place to just run around a enjoy nature in the spring and summer, and we love to bundle up and enjoy the holiday festivities during the colder seasons.

To help us celebrate, NYBG is offering another 4pack of tickets to see the Holiday Train Show, which runs until January 12th.

Marvel at model trains zipping around New York landmark replicas made of plant parts such as nuts, bark, and leaves, and get an insider’s look at how the building replicas are constructed in The Artist’s Studio. Explore the exhibition in the warmth of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, enjoy hands-on holiday fun for the entire family, and get your holiday shopping done too—it’s a whole day of fun!

TO ENTER: Visit NYBG on Facebook. Leave a comment letting us know which NYC replica you are most excited to see this year. A random winner will be selected.

The train show is always different, so you can return year after year! This year’s show includes:

  • More trains than ever before, including a new G-scale Metro-North train that winds its way around a display of Hudson River Valley mansions in the Palm Dome pool
  • Holiday Adventures in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, where kids can embark on a journey through a variety of activity train station stops
  • special reading by former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins of his train-themed poems and an ongoing display of his work in the landscape around the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory
  • and a new holiday dining experience inspired by the historic streets of New York

 

Thanks to NYBG for another great giveaway!
