Cobb museum holding ‘Polar Express’ in your PJs party

If you know a child going through an obsessed-with-trains phase, the Southern Museum could earn you a big hug.

On Dec. 9, a Saturday, the museum is again holding its Polar Express Adventure, which will feature a decked-out historic locomotive, a walkable Santa’s workshop and a visit by Santa Claus.

There will also be model trains to play with and a showing of the 2004 animated holiday heartwarmer “The Polar Express,” which stars the voice of Tom Hanks.
