Both the miniature and the colossal come alive today as the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center celebrates the opening of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, an interactive exhibition where modes of transit are the stars. Culled from a dozen private collections, more than a hundred models will be on display, from tiny re-creations of Colorado’s mining railways to monstrous radio-controlled airplane models with five-foot wingspans.

“After the success of our Lego exhibition last year, we wanted to again shift to a family-friendly summer exhibit,” says Erik Mason, the museum’s curator of research and information. “We did a lot of brainstorming when it came to the hands-on part.”

That firsthand fun includes an expertly designed Hot Wheels racing track, a station for building wooden model cars, a paper-airplane launcher that uses compressed air, a flight simulator for model airplanes and more.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles runs through September 14 at the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center, 400 Quail Road in Longmont. Admission is $5, or free for museum members. For more information, call 303-651-8374 or visit ci.longmont.co.us.
