This was a nice museum to learn about the town. As with most museums it was not something children would enjoy.

The museum was neat to visit if you are in the area but I wouldn't go back again just to visit this particular museum.

We stumbled by this location when we were looking at the statue. They're all in the same general area. The Santa Claus church is also nearby and it's a neat piece of history.

A cute little place to visit on a rainy day. It isn't much to do but it is a very Santa oriented and my kids enjoyed it. Free but they do take donations to keep it running.
