It’s that time of year again when the collections and exhibit department puts on our festive hats and gets ready for our Annual Holiday extravaganza! And this time it is all about transportation!
This year the theme is “Planes, Train, and Automobiles!” – Not the John Candy movie but all things transportation! There will be big cars, little cars, long trains, short trains and even a few airplanes in the sky. As usual there will be festivities for all ages. Come join us for crafts, treats, games, and just a ton of family fun.
Santa will be here to visit from 1pm-3pm. He’ll be taking pictures both in the Museum as well as around the grounds- so be sure to dress warmly if you want that perfect photo with Santa at our locomotive or inside the trolley!

• Games, crafts, and fun activities for all ages
• Find our wily elf to be entered in a raffle
• New Transportation Themed Exhibit
• Treats and Cocoa provided
• Family fun for all ages
• Free admission for all, but ask you to spread holiday cheer by choosing an item from the Watson Children Shelter Wish-list and bring it- unwrapped.
So come on out and join us on Sunday, November 19, from 12-4pm to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. We promise there are LOTS of surprises to be had, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for all the up-to-date information.
