The Polar Express

The Polar Express holiday display will delight train lovers of all ages! Large-scale model trains wind through colorful poinsettias and other gorgeous plants. Thank you to Kansas City Garden Railway Society members, who donated the trains and equipment for the exhibit. 

The Polar Express display is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily* through January 4 and is included with regular Garden admission. 

*Powell Gardens is closed Christmas and New Year's Day.

May 2-September 7: Nature Connects 2.0 (All New Sculptures Built with LEGO Bricks)

Amazing LEGO brick artist Sean Kenney brings a completely new set of sculptures to Powell Gardens next summer. Just like the exhibit presented in 2013, these colorful and intricate sculptures depict the complex and amazing networks of nature.

We're planning another summer of discovery stations, building competitions, special programs and more!  Stay tuned for more details.

Did you know? The exhibits in our "crown jewel," also known as the glass-domed Conservatory, change six times a year. Each August this space turns into a magical butterfly house.  Learn more »
