Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Children of all ages can ride the North Pole Express to see Santa Claus on Dec. 6-8 and Dec. 13-15 at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village.
Museum Director Garrett Boone said that thanks to the generous support of volunteers, the Museum has been able to add a second weekend to the North Pole Express this year.

“This has always been one of our most popular events, and we are so glad to be able to add some extra nights to this magical experience this year,” Boone said.  “This event has sold out in the past, and I encourage everyone to get their tickets early.”

Tickets for the North Pole Express are now available in the Museum’s Country Store at a cost of $10 per person.  The tickets must be purchased in person at the Country Store. Tickets will not be available for purchase over the phone.

Children one year of age and under are free.  Everyone over the age of one year old must have a ticket. Tickets will not be sold at the event. The North Pole Express runs in all kinds of weather from 5-8:20 p.m. on the designated dates.

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 Santa Claus and enjoy the movie version of “The Polar Express.”

Bring along your camera for some great photo opportunities with Santa. For the best experience possible, Boone recommends that your group arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled session.
