While the Children's Museum stays fresh with exciting exhibits, this holiday favorite offers something for everyone. Below are some of the exhibits you can expect:
Without a doubt, the highlight of Jolly Days is the Yule Slide. The slide takes over the staircase of the Sunburst Atrium and drops an entire floor. Visitors sail down the slide on mats which accelerate the speed, ensuring a thrilling ride for kids and adults alike.
Photos with Santa
Check out your naughty or nice status with Santa while visiting Jolly Days. Santa is on hand for photos. The North Pole display is beautiful and even though the lines to Santa can be fairly long, there's plenty of things in the exhibit to look at while you wait. It should also be noted that the Santa at the museum is very realistic and the photos are good quality.
Children can stretch their imaginations while visiting Santa's reindeer. Journey into the North Pole stables to groom and feed the reindeer before they go out for the big night. Bake up a batch of cookies in Santa's kitchen.
Snow and Ice Fun
The Snow Castle is perfect for infants and toddlers. The castle includes a slide and several tunnels for the youngest visitors to crawl in and hide. Older kids will enjoy "ice" skating in their socks on the pretend ice pond and ice fishing.
Jolly Days is included in regular museum admission. The exhibit opens the day after Thanksgiving and runs through the first week of January.
