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

This year’s theme trees will feature Santa and his reindeer, snow and ice, lighthouses, nature and boats of course!

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

A vintage waterfront village is set under the ten-foot high Christmas tree featuring gingerbread cookies decorated by area children.

At 2 p.m., Santa Claus will arrive by U. S. Coast Guard Cutter and there is no need to have your child wait in a long line to see him.

Unlike the mall, children will have plenty to do as they participate in crafts, listen to festive stories, hear music or watch the train display run while waiting to take their turn.

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

The museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open daily 1-5 p.m.
