Celebration Crossing

Soak in pure holiday magic at the Indiana State Museum's holiday experience, Celebration Crossing! 

Ride the Santa Claus Express train and visit Santa and Mrs. Claus in their house. At Santa's Workshop, the kids can engineer the best way to pack Santa’s sleigh with different sized presents, and assist our new reindeer recruits as they practice their take-offs and landings. Take a break by Chimney Corner to read a story and more. In Santa’s Front Yard, you can build a snowman, have a "snowball" fight and decorate trees. 

Enjoy these (and more!) activities included with your museum general admission. Purchase tickets online and save $1 per ticket. Scroll below to find more holiday activities offered in conjunction with Celebration Crossing.
