It’s a child’s world of wonder where the magic of Christmas, trains, and Santa Claus evokes a warm feeling of nostalgia when your family visits the Hesston Steam Museum the first two weekends in December. Grab some hot cocoa and ride the Candy Cane Express in open or enclosed passenger coaches for a 20 minute scenic ride through the woods and farmlands of the Hesston Steam Museum. Santa waits for your Christmas wish lists in a 1900s era railroad caboose and you are invited to take photos with him at no charge. The caboose’s wood stove warms the winter air as your family prepares to visit with him. 
  • Then step into The Depot Store, where you can find lots of great stocking stuffers and gifts for your little engineer - all at 15% off the normal price. 
  • Hungry? Doc’s Soda Fountain is an authentic 1930 soda bar where “soda jerks” dish up ice cream treats for your family. Doc’s adds to the vintage experience with festive hand dipped milk shakes, full lunches, and even breakfast from 9 - 11! 
  • Free train ride? Give & Receive -  Give a new unwrapped toy to US Marine Corps Toys for Tots and receive a free train ticket (suggested value of toy is $6+). Volunteers of the Hesston Steam Museum are very proud to support this worthy cause.
