Ladies and gentlemen, Santa and elves… start your engines! Santa is arriving at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in an Indy Racing Experience two-seater IndyCar!

Santa will arrive the morning after Thanksgiving Day. The festivities rev up at 9 am when a special police escort will guide the way for Santa and sleigh.

This holiday tradition is free with museum admission. Guests are encouraged to arrive at 8:30 am to purchase a treat or two from the Gingerbread Café, pick up a free cup of cozy cocoa on the plaza and chat with cheery elves before the big show!

Before you walk around the exhibit’s winter wonderland or take a trip down the Yule Slide, and take advantage of special opportunities that will be happening during this big event.
