Event Info

Journey to the North Pole

The ultimate holiday exhibit • November 20 – January 6

Drawing inspiration from lessons in navigation and geography, along with traditional holiday literature, Journey to the North Pole will transform the Gertrude C. Ford Exhibition Hall into a magical winter village of twinkling lights and train cars. Only a few feet from the entrance into the exhibit will also be the Snowflake Slide, a 45-foot tall slide down our center staircase.

Please note that children must be 36″ or taller to ride the Snowflake Slide, but children who do not meet the height requirement can play MCM’s fantastic Bingo to earn a special prize!
