Winterfest and the Tunnel of Lights is celebrating its 43rd year as a family holiday tradition. Halls are decked both inside and outside with over 15,000 lights. Outside, closed trolley cars transport jolly guests down a tunnel of lights as they sing traditional Christmas carols with their trolley car operators. For an open air view of the Tunnel of Lights, one open sleigh car is lit up entirely with holiday lights. Be sure to dress warm and bring blankets! Inside, the Visitor Center is decorated like a Winter Wonderland with multiple model train layouts and lights galore. A food vendor will be on-site serving hot cocoa, coffee, donuts and cookies up until December 19th.
The museum has teamed up with Campiti Ventures who has created holiday 3D holographic exhibits. There will be several displays to view during the tunnel of lights trolley ride and several displays in and around the Visitor Center. This is a unique experience for all ages! Campiti Ventures created the Winter Wonder Drive Thru at the Big E in 2020 and we are thrilled that they teamed up with us this year.
