VISIT & explore

Enchanted Railroad

The Enchanted Railroad will close at noon today, February 1, to ensure safe travels for our train volunteers and fans!


All aboard for The Morton Arboretum’s 13th annual Enchanted Railroad! Updated for 2015, the display highlights our favorite seasons at the Arboretum--spring, summer, autumn, and winter!

Watch as the trains wind through all four seasons. Can you spy a pumpkin patch in autumn or the daffodil glades in spring?

Keeping the youngest train enthusiasts in mind, this model train is designed to be easily seen from two feet off the ground. Push buttons let all visitors interact with the models. There are two levels of trains cycling through the tracks running through all four seasons. Don't miss this all-new, enchanting exhibit!


Be sure to join us for Whistle-Stop lunch specials in the Ginkgo Restaurant and Cafe.


Visit the Sycamore Room to see the all new Enchanted Railroad display.
