Christmas Tours

Young and old alike will love the family-friendly Christmas displays at the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art. You'll find Christmas trees and nativity sets in almost every room. There's a gingerbread house big enough for kids to play in, Santas, garland, wreaths, and interactive musical characters that sing and dance and add to the Christmas spirit.

Walk through at your own pace and see historic American landmarks, London landmarks, and Lafayette houses that surround the Christmas trains in several rooms. Take an even closer look at the trains by crawling through a tunnel and watching them from inside the loop.

The Indiana paintings and antiques will remain in place during the Christmas Tours to maintain a homey feel of the Colonial Revival mansion. The Haan Museum is impressive on an ordinary day, and seeing it all decked out for the Holidays is an extraordinary experience.
