DeCordova Museum

A good friend and I saw a new exhibition at the DeCordova Museum featuring model trains traveling through appealing and creative environments designed specifically for the show. Trainscape: Installation Art for Model Railroads succeeds in creating highly appealing fantasy scenes juxtaposed with the traditional theme of train sets. It is a clever idea and the result is a delight. A world made from glass was so enticing as were many other themed elements of the larger exhibition. Two of the large trains were still. The effect would have been enhanced if they were in operation as well.
