To minimize the wait that many of you experienced in the past, and to make coming to an Open House more comfortable, we are now selling timed tickets for 30 min time slots.  We do not plan to sell tickets at the door, but if you cannot pay on-line, we can make accommodation. The number of tickets for each time slot is limited and if they sell out, we will not offer any more.  Your ticket purchase is a donation to the BSMRM and all ticket sales are final; we do not have the resources to manage providing refunds or exchanges. 

Open House Train Shows

During Open House Trains Shows all three layouts in N, HO and O, plus Trolleys will be operating with multiple trains each. The layouts will be in top shape for you to view and it is a great time for people of all ages. Photography and videography are welcome. We regret that we are not accessible to people with disabilities (one flight of stairs).

Admission is $6 for adults and children 5 and older. Our new ticketing system does not allow for admitting children under 5 for free as we have done in the past, so there is a 25 cent charge for them to cover service fees. Please buy a ticket for everyone in your party -- we need to manage the number people admitted per hour due to limited capacity of the room. We do not plan to sell tickets at the door, so please book here. 

REMEMBER: If with a General Membership to the BSMRM you get 8 free admissions to Open House events and early access to the Open House ticket sales before they are announced to the public.
