Relive precious memories - Window shop at "Woolworth's 5&10", filled with vintage merchandise and fixtures; discover "Christmas 1944 - The War Years", and more. Thousands of antiques and collectibles stir memories of hearth and home.

Be a child again - Imagine a Christmas tree so large its branches reach the four corners of the room! Nestled underneath is a huge mountain of fantasy villages and electric trains - "Toyland". Step into the pages of a fairytale as you walk through "TudorTowne", our animated storybook village. Encounter the animated elves, bears and reindeer busily crafting Christmas toys in "Santa's North Pole Workshop".

Entertaining and Educational Exhibits- Learn the origins of many Christmas customs and traditions in "Pennsylvania Christmas". Explore a global village and see life-sized gift givers in "Christmas around the World". Watch the evolution from Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, Turkey, 300 AD, to today's Santa Claus.

Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas - Follow in Joseph and Mary's footsteps as you walk through breath-taking, life-sized scenes from "The First Christmas". Feel the sand under your feet, hear the language and music of the time, explore an oasis marketplace and, in the end, in a humble grotto, behold the birth of Christ. Discover how the crèche has been depicted throughout time and around the world in "The Art of the Nativity".
