Christmas Village at the American Windmill Museum

But this time of year, The American Windmill Museum adds a special treat to the line-up with their Christmas Village display. Exhibited now through December 25th, this festive holiday highlight features the St. Nick Express, a detailed township display and joyous activity for kids and adults alike. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
