Children’s Museum to feature discounted admission and live reindeer during downtown Miracle on 7th Street event
On Friday, Dec. 6, downtown Terre Haute will celebrate the holidays with the 5th Annual Miracle on 7th Street event, and the Terre Haute Children’s Museum will join in the festivities with discounted admission, an appearance by a live reindeer, holiday-themed stories and activities, music provided by the ISU Holiday Choir and an opportunity to write a letter to Santa.
From 5 to 8 p.m., there will be a wide variety of activities throughout the Museum. There will be insta-snow demonstrations, snacks and storytelling, and students from the INTERLINK Language Center at Indiana State University will be on hand to share information about their different cultures. In addition, the ISU Holiday Choir will be greeting guests with song as they perform outside of the Children’s Museum at 7 p.m.
From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., join Silly Safaris for “The Indiana Reindeer Reserve!” One of Santa’s elves will be on hand to share all the secrets of life in the workshop and at the reindeer barn. Guests will get to meet the reindeer and take photos, but Santa’s elf and his reindeer friend are very busy this time of year, so they must be on their way by 8:30 p.m. Bring your camera, and make plans to get to the Museum early so that you don’t miss out on the fun! The Reindeer Reserve presentation is sponsored by the Terre Haute Rotary Club and Silly Safaris.
While you’re at the Museum, be sure to also stop by the Old National Bank Science Store! Purchase a membership to the Museum for your family or a family that you love, sponsor a brick at the Museum for that "hard to buy for" person who has it all, pick up a Museum gift certificate so that your loved ones can use it towards a summer camp program or birthday party at the Museum, or choose from the wide variety of unique educational toys and gifts that the Museum carries. All Science Kits in the store will be 20 percent off that day, and varieties of kits include Physics Discovery, Remote-Controlled Machines, Human Anatomy, and Crystal Mining! Plus, the Science Store is managed by the Museum, so all proceeds go directly to benefit and programs and exhibits that we offer!
On Friday, Dec. 6, the Terre Haute Children's Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and admission will be a discounted rate of $5 per person for adults and children over 24 months. Children younger than 24 months and members of the Terre Haute Children’s Museum will be admitted for free. All activities are free with Museum admission. Letters to Santa will be written in the Museum’s atrium area. There is no charge to write a letter to Santa.
