This program is free of charge.

Munch on homemade cookies while enjoying our uniquely decorated holiday trees.

This year’s theme trees will highlight reindeer, lighthouses, and Santa.

Model train displays will be exhibited throughout the building courtesy of the Oswego Valley Railroad Association and Museum.

A vintage Waterfront Village is featured under the twelve-foot high Christmas tree.

At 2 p.m., Santa arrives.

There is no need to have your child wait in a long line. Unlike a mall store, children can participate in crafts, listen to stories, hear music or watch the train displays run while waiting to take their turn with Santa Claus.

He will not leave until he hears every child’s wish.

The Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop hours are open Monday – Sunday, 1 – 5 p.m.

Contact the office at 315-342-0480 or visit the museum on the web at hleewhitemarinemuseum.com or facebook.com/hlwmm for more information.
