EcoTarium Train Opens for the Season!

April 2 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Train is open for the season beginning 4/2!

For decades, the Explorer Express Train has provided excitement for EcoTarium visitors. Open-air passenger cars take visitors on a scenic 12-minute ride; a relaxing and beautiful way to see the museum grounds. As part of a recent partnership with the Worcester Railers Hockey Club, the EcoTarium was able to purchase a new train engine, number 395, which is a replica of the 1863 C.P. Huntington steam locomotive. The train station has been “Railerized,” in the blue and gray colors of the hockey club. Train engineers are outfitted in apparel with the Railers logo.

Tickets and Important Information:

  • Tickets are available at the train station on the day of your visit and are stamped for a scheduled time. Each run is capped at 46 riders.
  • The train is seasonal and typically runs April – December of each year. Runs on a schedule during museum hours.
  • The train is weather-dependent: if the temperature drops below freezing (32 degrees F), the train will not operate. Weather delays in operation can be caused by rain, lightning, high winds, low temperature, or other related factors.


$7.00 per person/$5.00 for EcoTarium members (this fare is in addition to general admission)
