MILWAUKEE – G-scale trains will travel past a miniature Miller Park Stadium, a tiny St. Josephat’s Cathedral, and even a scaled down version of the Domes, as part of the ‘Miniature Milwaukee’ train show inside the Mitchell Park Domes.

The annual train show, one of the most popular Show Dome displays each year, will be open daily from January 19 through April 7, 2019, and is included with general admission to The Domes.

Trains will travel past local parks and suburbs and wind around some of Milwaukee’s most notable landmarks and well-known buildings. A variety of miniature, G-Scaled plants will also fill the landscape, including miniature topiary azalea trees, violas, petunias and colorful varieties of coleus. A real desert and tropical plants will fill the mini-sized Domes too.

The Domes are open daily from 9am-5pm on weekdays and 9am-4pm on weekends and holidays. Special events during the train show include an All Scale Train Exhibit in the lobby on Feb. 9 &10; and the popular Steampunk show, Gardens & Gears, will return on March 2.
