Museum Members, come join us for a merry non-contact visit with Santa Claus Saturday Dec. 5 from 10 AM – 12 PM. Santa has turned in his sleigh (and helicopter) for a luxury Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. Santa will stand at the door of the plane and listen to the children’s Christmas wishes. Then he will slide a candy cane down his custom made candy cane dispenser for each good boy and girl. Make sure the kids bring their Christmas list and leave it for Santa.

This is an outdoor, Members-only event.  The Hiller Aviation Museum Gift Shop, outdoor areas and bathrooms will be open, but the Gallery will be closed to the general public.  State health rules applicable to outdoor museum operations will apply and visitors ages 3 and up must wear face coverings.  Non-Members may join the event by purchasing a Hiller Aviation Museum Membership – enjoy Membership benefits for all of 2021!
