Event description
All aboard The Polar Express! Enjoy a magical journey to the North Pole to make you believe in the Spirit of Christmas!

About this event

Put on your favorite pair of pajamas and hop aboard the Polar Express for a magical journey to the North Pole!

This event is for Polar Express Fridays at 6&8PM Saturdays at 2&4PM and Sundays 2&4PM

Join us for this family reenactment of the award-winning book, “The Polar Express”, written by Chris Van Allsburg. Your adventure begins on board our decorated train as Storytellers read the story aloud. As the train heads north toward the North Pole, festive elves will entertain you with songs and activities. Delicious chocolate milk and a cookie specially made by Mrs. Claus just for you are served on board.

When the train arrives at the North Pole you will see Santa and his workshop out your train window. (Passengers do not get off the train.) The train stops long enough to pick up Santa, who will visit with children on the way back and gift them all with a special jingle bell taken from the reindeer’s harness. If you can hear the bell ring…you truly believe!

Before or after the trip, enjoy the holiday decorations in our 1873 Depot, now a National Historic Landmark for its important role during WWII. Take the kids for a tour the Museum and enjoy the Bing Scavenger Hunt that will take you through the new wing at our museum composed of a train attached to the Depot! Enjoy dinner in one of our local restaurants. Don’t leave without picking up your Polar Express souvenirs in the Museum’s Whistle Stop Railway Gift Shop.
