OKLAHOMA CITY – City officials are inviting the public to explore the newly restored Santa Fe Station with a free, family-friendly open house.

The 80-year-old historic Santa Fe Station has been “restored to its former opulence and will serve as Oklahoma City’s multi-modal transportation hub.”

There will be “characters wearing vintage costumes” who will help visitors, especially children, feel like they’ve been transported back in time.

Kids will get free hot chocolate, a free train whistle and a free train safety coloring book, while supplies last.

Station tours are also available and kids are able to put together a free holiday craft.

The renovation helped restore architectural and design elements of the station, improving the boarding platforms and other passenger areas and enhance the streetscape on E.K. Gaylord between Reno Ave. and Main Street.

The free open house is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 100 S. E.K. Gaylord Blvd.
