Indiana History Center
Indulge in a winter wonderland at the History Center’s Festival of Trees, open Saturday, Nov. 16 through Saturday, Jan. 5. We’re filling the building with 80 elaborately themed trees and a 30-foot showstopper!
Visit Santa – Every Saturday from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, Santa strolls through the History Center from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. to hand out special treats to children of all ages. He stops for breaks at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. to read holiday stories to the little ones in Eli Lilly Hall. (We hear The Night Before Christmas is his favorite!)
Holidays on the Homestead – What did Hoosier pioneers do during the holiday season? See for yourself! Play games, make decorations, and learn how to craft simple, homemade gifts from.
