You’re invited on an extraordinary 4-D adventure this holiday season on The Polar Express! When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

The museum’s 4D theater provides a 3-D visual experience with the fourth dimension of environmental experiences like blasts of air, vibrating seats and water spray. The only permanent theater of its kind in the state, the 4-D theater will offer programming that complements other museum exhibits and popular movies that will excite all ages.
