Stuhr Museum’s beloved North Pole Express returns again in 2022 to provide a unique and immersive holiday experience for children to cherish for years to come!

This program is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes long and includes boarding an authentic rail car, a reenactment of the story “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg, building their very own wooden train car, and other seasonal activities. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite PJs as they embark on this memorable holiday adventure.

The North Pole Express is intended for children ages 4 - 11 years old. Younger children may keep one adult with them if they prefer. Please note, the minimum age to attend North Pole Express is 4 years old. We strive to accommodate the most children safely in the space available, therefore space for adults is limited. Parents are welcome to drop off the kiddos and go run a couple of quick errands or visit the Stuhr Building for a cup of coffee or cocoa while the program is going on. 3 sessions are available each day: 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m.

The cost for the North Pole Express experience is $30 for members and $40 for non-members.

Times: 9:00 am - 10:30 am | 11:00 am - 12:15 pm | 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
