Every year we go to the Chicago Botanic Gardens for the amazing Wonderland Express exhibit. This year my family was invited to attend and it was as glorious as ever; it even snows inside the building where the trains are displayed. Above is a video that shows children enjoying the magnificent train displays mixed in with some downright beautiful holiday floral exhibits.
The Wonderland Express exhibit is inside the Regenstein Center and is a 10,000-square-foot exhibition of miniature trains winding through more than 80 miniature Chicago-area landmarks, including Navy Pier, Soldier Field, Chicago Stadium, the Chinatown Arch, the Art Institute, the South Shore Cultural Center, the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House, and more. All the landmarks and miniature buildings are made from natural materials. It is quite astounding to see the buildings made from thing like leaves, bark, and moss nestled in gorgeous floral displays.
