At this museum, families can learn the history behind Santa Claus, Indiana from its beginnings as Santa Fee — with a population of just 65! — and see how it became the bustling town it is today. There are a number of artifacts and displays documenting the town’s history and growth, as well as antique toys and a large collection of Santa Clauses from around the world. Kids also should make a stop at the Santa Claus Post Office, where they can write their own letter to Santa. Keep an eye on the mailbox come winter! Other features in the village include the 1880 Santa Claus Church and the 22-foot-tall, concrete, 1935 Santa Claus Statue.
Open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Free, but donations are appreciated.
