  • I went to visit so many times during Christmas. Sad news to learn of the closing.
  • Beautiful museum. Share Christmas memories from the past while browsing the extensive displays. It's like going window shopping through the generations. We have taken grown family and grandchildren over the years. Life-size carved wood manger display over 100 years old from NY department store. Beautiful Manger collection from around the world. Excellent train display and collections. Visit with Santa. Photos available $16 and up for packages, or just talk to Santa for free. The National Christmas museum is 20,000 square feet. Allow a minimum of 1-1/2 to 2 hours to view the displays and shop-in the gift shop. Well worth the trip there! Note: This may be the last year unless they get some investors since the owner wants to retire. Maybe you know the perfect person...
