Spring is here, and what better way to celebrate than with a festive train ride, Easter Bunny, egg hunts, activities for kids, and more. Special Fares applies on these days. No passes honored on these days. No admission to the grounds without Bunny Trolley Hop ticket.
he Illinois Railway Museum is pleased to announce that it will be holding the Bunny Trolley Hop again in 2020. Hop aboard the specially-decorated electric cars at the East Union Depot for a 30-minute train ride. During your ride along the Bunny Trail you can help the Easter Bunny find his missing treasure to fill his basket. At the end of your ride you will be able to join the Easter Egg Hunt, which will be outdoors weather permitting (inside one of the large exhibit buildings in case of rain). Please bring your own basket! After the hunt, make your way back to 50th avenue elevated station, where kids can enjoy coloring activities and take a picture with the Easter Bunny. There will also be an inflatable bounce house along with our regular train-themed playground activities.
Ticket prices TBA. All guests who have passed their second birthday need a ticket. To ensure that you have time with the Easter Bunny, only a limited number of tickets will be sold for each trip. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your trip time and plan to allow 60-90 minutes for the entire experience. The museum will only be open to Bunny Trolley Hop ticket holders but the exhibit buildings will be open to view the trains on display.
Tickets will be available on the museum website. Everyone who has passed their second birthday needs a ticket. If you are unable to print your tickets at home, bring a copy of your order confirmation email to the museum store where you will check in for your ride. This is a specially ticketed event – passes not honored during this event – general admission not available.
