Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sun: 1 - 4 PM, Sat: 10 - 4 PM
Christmas is a special time at the Haan Museum, with a lot of family-friendly activities. Kids can play in the gingerbread-style house complete with chairs, stuffed animals and lights; or hold the reins as they ride in a sleigh behind two (stationary) reindeer. Children can activate musical characters throughout the Museum to sing and dance.
Christmas is the only time children 4 and under can visit the Haan Museum. The fragile pieces are put away or placed on higher shelves, and we have lots of things for kids to do.
Travel the world during Christmas at the Haan Museum. The trains become a passport as they meander past the Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, Kensington Palace, and many other famous London landmarks. Dickens Village buildings complete the exciting landscape.
Visit 19 historic American landmarks in the next rooms, as a larger train passes the Empire State Building, Independence Hall, and other famous east coast buildings. Crawl through a tunnel and watch from inside the loop for an even closer look.
Follow the trains as they travel through a closet and bedroom to another bedroom, where you’ll find Wrigley Field, the Chicago Art Institute and the Chicago Water Tower from the Midwest, and the Golden Gate Bridge from the west coast among other buildings.
You pass two six feet tall Nutcracker guards as you enter the Museum. Decorated trees in almost every room enhance the family-friendly atmosphere. Santas, wreaths, over 20 nativity sets, and garland add to the festive feel.
The back bedroom contains the complete set of historic Lafayette buildings issued by TCHA, including our newest donated additions of Jefferson High School, Frozen Custard, and McCord's Candies.
Still a Museum
The Indiana paintings and antiques remain in place during Christmas to maintain the 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 experience that your family will remember fondly.
