The Historic 1935 Santa Statue is "dedicated to the children of the world." Standing 22-feet tall and weighing 40-tons, the Santa Statue just underwent a full-restoration, returning the iconic figure of Santa back to his original condition. The public is free to visit the statue during the day or when it is beautifully lit at night.

Nice statue

Definitely worth stopping to see. While you're there, stop and check out the museum and church as well. A lot of interesting history with them

This is a great addition to the Santa Museum. Make sure you climb the hill and read the inscriptions on all four sides of the statue.

What is interesting about this statue is its history. Santa Claus revolve around a handful of things, but the history is what make it interesting. See it on the museum grounds.

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.

This statue is HUGE. The property is nice. He sits up on a hill overlooking the area. There is a museum, a Church with historical plaque, and a post office where kids can sit write letters to to Santa. In the museum there is a map with expansion plans for the area which look amazing. It will be exciting to... More

They have moved the museum, original Post Office and Church all on the same property. There are great plans for expansion on the property.
