I agree with those who posted the admission price is high. But I must say my husband and I did enjoy wandering through the exhibits.

I stopped in expecting a store that sold Christmas items and discovered a Christmas museum filled with memories. I found myself fighting back tears as I walked through some areas because I thought of my mommom and mom. Religious and secular wonders. I got a sm discount thanks to AAA.

My friend and I live about 30 minutes from here and decided to check it out and I'm so glad we did! It puts you in the Christmas mood, even in the middle of September! It was a bit tacky at some points, but it's Christmas. Such a fun time and the nicest staff!

Awesome display of Christmas ! From trains, to toys, to Christmas of the nations. Wonderful and ageless collection. Great for the avid Christmas lover or just the husband of her! Our two year old also loved it!!! Great price and nice little gift shop too.

I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed about what they will find inside of the National Christmas Center. True Christmas history and meaning preserved. If you have the opportunity to meet "Santa Jr." He will tell you all sorts of amazing history. Take your time and enjoy. Children of all ages will enjoy.

Truly amazing. Plan on spending lots of time here. The staff is wonderful and the attractions are priceless. The train display is great. Great to see all the original toys and the original boxes. It will bring back so many childhood memories. Highly recommend.
