A Christmas Journey
A Christmas Journey has been extended!
December 8, 9, and 15 (sold out)
December 16: 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. (Call 508-929-2700 for availability and to purchase tickets)
The magic of this seasonal journey begins with storytime, featuring Chris Van Allsburg’s classic winter tale The Polar Express. The holiday tale then comes alive as the EcoTarium's "elves" help families to the train station to board the Explorer Express Train for a trip 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 for a personal visit with Santa. Be sure to bring your camera to capture your child's special moment!
