Program Highlights:

Visit Santa in our new Winter Wonderland

It is hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us! Here are some helpful tips for those of you who are still planning to visit Santa to get those last minute holiday requests and photos in.

  • Santa is here from 10am – 4pm Monday – Friday and 9:30am – 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, as well as Friday, November 29th.

  • The best times to visit Santa are generally weekday afternoons, which are usually slower, as Santa will have more time to spend with each child.

  • Santa does take a break to feed his reindeer each afternoon. We will close the line to facilitate his break. Once he has departed we will reopen the line for guests wishing to wait for his return. Because Santa sees everyone in line before his departure, his break time will vary. So please check with Santa’s Greeter to confirm his return time.

  • Saturday and Sunday afternoons are our busiest time so plan to get in line early. On these busy weekends we often need to close the line as early as 3pm to accommodate the long line of guests by 5pm when the museum closes.

Visit Depot Town Area to enjoy:
  • Lionel and LEGO® train displays

  • Giant Museum Christmas tree

  • Story reading inside the Bangor & Aroostook train car
    • Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 – 10a – 5pm
    • Dec. 2 - Dec. 20 – weekdays 10am – 2pm
    • Dec. 7 – 22 – weekends 10a – 5pm
    • Dec. 23 - Jan. 5, 2014 – 10am – 5pm weekends and weekdays

  • Write a letter or thank-you to Santa and mail it in our LEGO® mailbox. (Nov. 29th – Dec. 24th only)
