All aboard Santa's Express! Join Santa for a 75-minute journey on our heated, decorated train through the Chester Creek Valley. Santa will be greeting everyone at Market Street Station and then going along for the ride to Glen Mills and return. Santa will be visiting all passengers while on the train. Make sure you bring your holiday lists with you so Santa can check them twice! Passengers will also enjoy live entertainment while on board.

A Christmas tradition since 1959, Strasburg Rail Road welcomes a very special visitor every November and December. That’s right, Santa himself will climb aboard the historic steam train to greet families as they travel down the tracks to Paradise, PA and back. As a special treat, children ages 11 and under will receive a gift from Santa and his helper during this nostalgic 45-minute steam train ride.

The West Chester University Dance Team is excited to offer a youth clinic for participants in grades K-6! The clinic is an excellent opportunity for the dancers to gain exposure to the team and learn the Golden Ram's traditions. Dancers can expect individualized attention from West Chester University Dance Team members, new choreography, and an overall fun experience. The clinic provides a great introduction to jazz, hip-hop, and pom styles. Dancers will also learn fun routines.

What’s the greatest invention in human history? Some might say the wheel, the printing press, the airplane, or the internet. The truth is that every invention has changed the way you eat, work and play—even the way you brush your teeth! During this family fun day, kids will learn the history of some of the big (and small!) inventions that changed the world in their own way, like toothpaste, paper, and more. You'll even get to meet Ben Franklin and learn about some of his greatest inventions!

Tickets include all-day access to the museum and members are free, but registration is required so that we have enough supplies on hand. Both children and adults must have a ticket to enter.

All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times; activities are ongoing, so families can stop by at any point between 10:00am and 2:00pm and still enjoy every activity. Best for ages 7-13.
