So we weren't sure what to expect at the National Christmas Center. I was assuming it was a big Christmas store. I was obviously way off base in my assumption and glad that I was. It was $12.50 admission per person, which at first I was a bit taken aback by, but am glad we did it. The displays were... More

We spent 2.5 hours touring this facility and found it fun and enjoyable. Very informative and well set out. If you love all things Christmas this is a place you must visit. Lots of interesting vignettes. Take your time and read all the informative placards. Lots of thing to bring back a lot of memories for anyone 50 and older.... More

Beautifully done. Much better than I expected. It's a little pricey but turned out to be worth it. Many rooms with different themes. Great for children and adults of all ages.

Everything you remember from your youth you will see displayed from ornaments, dishes, candies to nativity scenes. There is a lot of walking but I made it and it is difficult for me to walk. There are chairs everywhere to rest and take in all the items. Christmas music is constantly playing.

I have such a amazing time here. I love the manger scenes from all over the world, and especially seeing ones from my bosses hometown. I also loved all the antique Christmas decorations.

The National Christmas Center is always a favorite stop when we visit the area. We've been there several times, and always find something we didn't see the last visit. We have brought friends and family, as well, and they too were mesmerized by the vastness of the displays. It also brought back many fond memories of our Christmases past, from... More

We visited the museum for the first time because of a field trip with first graders. I was expecting something a lot more oriented to children. They have a ton of Christmas decorations and trees and Nativity sets from all over the world and from many years ago. The displays are a bit too full making it hard to see... More

My sister and I took a drive out on a Saturday to check this place out---Santa greeted us at the door, I literally think its him! It was unbelievable the amount of displays that can be found here. From the Woolworth room with TONS of old school toys and decorations to the train room to the Santa workshop room...it goes... More
