November 17, 2014

Children of all ages can ride the North Pole Express to see Santa Claus from 5-8 p.m. on Dec. 18-19 at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

The Museum’s 1917 Vulcan steam locomotive will depart for the North Pole every 20 minutes. Guests will be able to listen to Mrs. Claus read the holiday classic, “The Polar Express,” in the Clyatt Cabin before boarding the North Pole Express to visit with Santa Claus and enjoy the movie version of “The Polar Express” in a winter wonderland.

Tickets for the North Pole Express are available for $6 per person and must be purchased in advance at the Country Store. Tickets will not be sold at the event. The North Pole Express will run in all kinds of weather.

“The magic of the holidays will be enjoyed by the entire family,” said Lynn McDonald, volunteer coordinator, Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village. “This event has become a family tradition for many of our guests. It is wonderful to see that special twinkle in the eyes of the young ones.”

Bring along your camera for some great photo opportunities. It is recommended that your group come a few minutes before your scheduled session for the best experience possible.

The Museum, Historic Village, and Gallery will be closed for the holiday season from Dec. 24, 2014-Jan. 2, 2015. The Country Store and all administrative offices will be closed from Dec. 24, 2014-Jan. 2, 2015. Everything will reopen on Jan. 3, 2015.
