CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Duke Energy has announced plans to relocate the annual holiday train display to the Cincinnati Museum Center.

The train display will become a part of an annual expanded experience called the "Cincinnati Museum Center Holiday Junction Featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains" beginning in the 2011 holiday season. 

"This was not an easy decision," said Johnna Reeder, vice president of Community Relations. "Our employees and our company take a lot of pride in this annual tradition. We simply ran out of space in our lobby and finding volunteers and skilled employees to build and run the trains has been challenging. We wanted to make sure the display would live on in Greater Cincinnati forever."

The display will begin on Nov. 5, which is much earlier than in years past.

Through the partnership with the Museum Center, all Ohio and Kentucky Duke Energy customers will receive a mailed postcard in mid- to late-October good for four free admissions to visit Cincinnati Museum Center's Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains from Saturday, Nov. 5 until Saturday, Dec. 24.

Visitors will have to present the postcard to the box office at the time of arrival. Additional tickets can be purchased online or through the CMC ticket office.

The Duke Energy Holiday Train display celebrated its 65th anniversary in 2010. It was previously held at the Duke Energy building on Fourth Street in Downtown Cincinnati.

While the exhibit is also open to the public from Monday, Dec. 26 – Sunday, Jan. 1, only CMC annual membership holders will be able to enter at no cost. CMC is closed Nov. 25 and Dec. 25 for the holidays.

CMC's "All-Museums" admission pass ($12.50 adult/$8.50 child) or the Cincinnati History Museum admission pass ($8.50 adult/$6.50 child) include free entry to the Holiday Junction featuring the trains.

The Holiday Junction exhibit at the CMC will also feature holiday decorations, a kid-sized train, Santa Claus and reindeer.
