Visit Santa Claus, Indiana, and take a stroll through history at the Santa Claus Museum & Village. Pay a visit to the historic, 1935 Santa Claus Statue. Stop by the Original Santa Claus Post Office, where children can sit at antique school desks and pen their letters to Santa. Make sure to tour the stunning 1880 Santa Claus Church. And stop by the Santa Claus Museum to read children’s letters to Santa dating back to the 1930s. Don’t forget to do some shopping in the museum gift shop for a souvenir of your visit.

Group Visits: 

If you would like to schedule a visit for your tour group, school, club, or organization, please contact us at 812-544-2434 or for fees and details.

Admission is free and open to the public, but we do rely on your generous donations to help fund the museum’s efforts to preserve our history for the enjoyment of future generations. All donations and gift shop proceeds also help Santa’s Elves purchase the postage necessary to mail thousands of letters from Santa each year. We suggest a donation of $2 per person or $5 per family.
