One of the things I absolutely LOVE about this museum is that you'll enjoy your own self-guided tour. There are informational plaques and story boards along the way that will give you information as you go. You can really take your time and go through the museum at your own pace. On the day that we visited, they weren't crowded and we spent a leisurely 80 minutes there...enjoying all of the wonderful sights and sounds.
The National Christmas Center is really magical...for young and old alike. You'll find a ton of beautifully lit and decorated Christmas trees. You'll learn all about the history of St. Nicholas and Santa Claus and see how he's changed his appearance over the years. You'll find all kinds of holiday items tucked into every nook and cranny and of this popular museum located in Lancaster County.
