I am so sad to hear that National Christmas Center is closed. We had such an awesome time with two teenagers last summer. A beautiful tribute to Christmas past. I’m glad we got to experience this lovely place.

In Dec 2017, I went there on a whim and my bah-humbug husband came along. Little did we know the magic we would behold. Words truly cannot describe this special place; from the Woolworth 5-10 store, Christmas figurines, war-time christmas postcards, massive train room, old-time...More

We've been going here for years and absolutely love it! Its such a shame they're closing. We love the nostalgic feel of the museum. You cant find decorations like that anywhere else around here.

This was a real treat. The original owners are closing the store on January 7, 2018 unless they can sell it. They are talking with several potential buyers. It is well done and a very wonderful family experience.
