At the Antler Hill Village, the large-scale model train tours guests to an exhibition of beautifully handcrafted replicas of the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, and more European landmarks, which the Vanderbilts visited during their travels.

The six separate railroad tracks weave through miniature replicas of the estate’s landmarks at the conservatory, including a replica of the conservatory itself, the Biltmore House, and more. The conservatory is also home to exotic greenhouse botanicals, many of which bloom year-round.
