A Christmas Journey

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets for A Christmas Journey. All sessions are currently sold out and tickets are no longer available.
Experience the magic of this seasonal journey as Mrs. Claus reads Chris Van Allsburg’s classic holiday story, The Polar Express. The story then comes alive as each child receives a bell to ring while walking to the train station, accompanied by the Conductor and Santa's Elves. Everyone boards the Explorer Express Train for a wintry ride around the EcoTarium's grounds. The December air feels festive and joyful as the children ring their bells along the route!
After traveling the grounds, you'll head back indoors to warm up with hot cocoa and cookies — and, at the end of your journey — enjoy a special visit with Santa Claus.
Each child will have an opportunity to meet Santa. Be sure to bring your camera to capture that special moment! Each child also receives a bell to bring home as an ornament, continuing the magic throughout the holiday season.
$10, EcoTarium members $7. Children under age 1 are free and must sit on an adult's lap while riding on the train.
