This was neat to look at. They have a perfect set up so you can take pictures with it in the background

This is a nice statue to see, and I enjoyed reading the history about the statue. The one thing I wish I could have seen was an area that had a cabin with Santa in it that children could see.

This statue has a deep history, just learn a little bit more about the town to find out. This statue to some may not mean much but trust me if you go to Santa Claus, Indiana you have to stop and see this.

The statue is on the same site as the small museum and original post office. It is worth a stop if you are driving by, especially if you have small kids. In the old post office building you can write a letter to Santa, post it and ring the bell to tell Santa he has mail. Then in December you... More

This is a must see when in Santa Claus. The statue sits atop a hill, a great place for pictures. Not sure when the museum is open as there were no hours of operation, but the statue was open for business.

Um, not sure what else to say about it. It's a statue of Santa. Lots of nostalgia with it with the residents of Santa Claus, I imagine, but to me, I just took a few pictures and that was it. It is on the same property as the museum.
