Group Tours

Christmas is more than a date on the calendar, it is a place in the heart. It is a time of treasured memories; a special toy, a decorated tree, a family tradition.  National Christmas Center is the place to share those wonderful memories.

Tours at National Christmas Center are self-guided. Please allow at least a 1 1/2 hour stay. For groups of 20 or more, we can sometimes accommodate your schedule by either opening earlier (for an additional fee) or opening during our 'close-down' period (January - February). National Christmas Center is handicap accessible and there are numerous seating opportunities throughout the exhibits.
