The staple of Holidays in Henry Ford Museum is the amazing, 25-foot Christmas tree in the Museum Plaza, which has become the favorite spot for holiday family photos. New ornaments will adorn the tree this year including 50 large die cast model cars, planes and trains, and model Faygo Pop bottles.

The little ones will make a beeline for the Silver Pewter aisle, where Santa awaits to hear their Christmas lists. Take a photo with Santa and receive an early Christmas gift of an exclusive coloring book created by The Henry Ford, and crayons to color it with. Don’t forget to write Santa a Christmas list and place it in the LEGO mailbox. After Christmas, thank you letters can be created and placed in the mailbox. Visitation with Santa is daily from Nov. 25 through Dec. 24, Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Depot Town is back, near the Allegheny Locomotive, with storytelling inside the Bangor & Aroostook train car, Thomas the Train activity tables, Duplo trains, and other hands-on toys. Also, the LEGO and Lionel train displays, beside the Alleghany train, will once again twist and turn through miniature holiday scenes.

New this year is a LEGO Learn to Build Workshop. Every Saturday, December 3 – 31st from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in Depot Town, for those ages 5 and older can create their own train. Families can purchase the trains completed by their kids.
