Mission Statement

From the images of childhood to the traditions or our past generations,

Christmas is unlike any other holiday.


National Christmas Center is dedicated to preserving and sharing precious
mementoes and memories of Christmases past. Our mission is to educate and entertain our guests, so that they may continue the timeless Christmas traditions we portray, or be inspired to create new customs and celebrations to enjoy with their own families and friends. Here, the true meaning of Christmas is honored and remembered; we celebrate the birth of Christ. We invite our guests to take a realistic journey from “Nazareth” to “Bethlehem”, immersing them in the rich history and culture of biblical times. Through this experience we hope to bring each visitor closer to a true understanding of the miracle that was that first Christmas, over 2000 years ago.
