This small museum has a collection of items that make Santa Claus Indiana a fun place to visit. They have a display of letters from around the country that have been delivered to the town. The historic first town post office has an area where a letter can be written to Santa with a response sent in return. This a great stop in Southern Indiana with a variety of attractions nearby.

Great little museum. Good history of the town and the amusement park. Very informative. So many cute things to see. There are actual letters to Santa from decades ago on display.

We stopped in and learned more about the town of Santa Claus and enjoyed the photos and exhibits. The staff was very friendly. Check the hours to make sure it open when you are going to be there.

This museum has the history of the town and the theme park, and lots of photos and mementos. It is absolutely charming. I have been there several times and I always find things I've missed. Going to Santa Claus is a must!

Neat little museum with friendly staff. There's a video to watch and some gifts to purchase. Donations are accepted and it's worth it.
