The Santa at the Depot event, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 7, will be held on Saturday, December 14th due to icy weather.  Please join the museum and Santa when the weather is more friendly.

Santa will arrive by train at 10 am on the 14th. He will be available to talk with kids and pose for pictures. The museum will be offering free barrel train and hand car rides, as well as free admission to the museum. Santa at the depot is a free event and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The museum is located in the Santa Fe Depot at 315 West Avenue B in downtown Temple.

Support the Temple Police Department’s Blue Santa program by bringing a new, unwrapped toy, book, or stuffed animal for a chance to win a prize basket from the museum store. Gifts will be delivered to underprivileged children within the City of Temple.
