The Solar Express is the newest year-round feature for visitors of Stepping Stones Museum for Children. A fun addition to the museum’s offerings, the train builds upon the museum’s commitment to energy conservation education and environmental responsibility. The train runs on solar power.
While out on the train route, “conductors” will highlight the museum’s environmental initiatives that include a green roof, a wind turbine, rain gardens, the use of renewable resources in our building materials and much more. Stepping Stones Museum for Children is a LEED Gold certified building, meeting the nation’s strictest controls in environmental sustainability.
Weather permitting, the Solar Express will run several times daily, bringing passengers on a unique 7 – 10 minute guided tour through historic Mathews Park. The train also takes a break from noon – 1:00 pm and 3:00 – 4:00 pm
