Windmill Winter Wonderland

The Windmill Winter Wonderland, an annual holiday tradition at the museum, amazes and enchants all who have the heart of a child!

Enjoy the magic and sounds of the season as you walk the pathways on the museum grounds.

Lights glow and fill the sky, illuminate the windmills, and brighten the grounds with color, movement, and images. A live nativity highlights the true meaning of the season. It is a true WONDERLAND experience!

 

In Baker Hall, Santa Claus, his bag loaded with treats, greets all the children. For their parents, craft vendor booths brim with holiday gifts for giving. Food and beverages are available. 

 

The Winter Wonderland’s lights glow amid wind, rain, snow, and even when temps drop to zero or below.
