Santa's Christmas Village

Santa's Christmas Village returns to the Northeast Louisiana Children's Museum. Visitors can have holiday fun while they decorate a cookie, make and take an ornament, slide down Mount Sneaux, play in our "snow", and visit with Santa.



Each year, The Children's Museum is a winter wonderland complete with twinkling lights, decorated trees, festive holiday music and of course ... Santa! Middle and high school art classes have created a Mini Christmas Village for our little visitors to enjoy while their siblings are sliding on Mount Sneaux. Enjoy our Christmas Light Show in the parking lot every Thursday-Sunday night (thanks to our sponsor DISCOVER MONROE-WEST MONROE), our annual Gingerbread Workshop on December 4th, Jammies and Jingles Breakfast with Santa on December 10th, and Cocoa and Cookies with The Grinch on December 18th will add to the memory-making festivities. Check out our socials and website for announcements on dates and times. Visitors ages 2 and up require a ticket.

Summer Kick Off 2024!

The Children’s Museum will officially welcome the start of Summer on Wednesday, June 20th. The day will be filled with activities, crafts, special guests and includes Mayor Ellis officially kicking off Summer and handing out popsicles at 11am!
