See the New-York Historical Society transformed this holiday season with the installation of a spectacular exhibition of treasures from the renowned Jerni Collection of model trains, scenic elements, and toys, owned by New-York Historical. The dynamic display appeals to all ages, showcasing the beauty and allure of toys from a bygone era. The Holiday Express exhibit unfolds over a broad swath of our first floor, featuring pieces from the Jerni Collection that transform the space into a magical wonderland. Theatrical lighting, an ambient audio 'soundscape,' and other visual effects immerse visitors in an enchanting holiday experience. The exhibition begins at the West 77th Street entrance, where trains appear to roar through the Museum with the help of four large-scale multimedia screens. A 360-degree mountainous landscape is on view in the Judith and Howard Berkowitz Sculpture Court, featuring artifacts grouped into ten scenes.
