The Rosen Galleries
The theme of the holiday exhibit is traditional – trains, trees, toys, and treasured memories of holiday seasons past—more trains than ever this year - both indoors and out. Christmas trees, period ornaments, and vintage toys present the Victorian era through the 1980s. Trains by Lionel, American Flyer, and Bachmann will chug through landscapes designed and built by department staff.
New this year are views inspired by “Toy Story,” “Petticoat Junction,” and “Green Acres,” along with favorites inspired by – “Thomas and Friends,” “The Polar Express,” and “Hogwarts.” Also returning are “Plasticville, U.S.A.” and “Night at the Drive-In.” An “Amusement Park and Pavilion” evokes the views and sounds of the historic Myrtle Beach Pavilion. These historic vignettes wrap the old and the new in holiday warmth inside the Rosen Galleries.
Outdoors, during Nights of a Thousand Candles, you will find a G-scale train display on the lawn in front of the pool in the Jewell Plaza. The “Station and Roundhouse,” an “Old West Town,” and the “700 Block of Front Street, Georgetown, SC” will return in an expanded layout. All trains will run only during Nights of a Thousand Candles.
In Rosen Galleries. Included with daytime Garden admission. (trains will not run during the day)
