About Santa Claus Museum
Nestled within the Kringle Place of Santa Claus, Indiana you will find the Santa Claus Museum. We are located just two doors down from our very famous Santa Claus Post Office.
Once you enter the doors of the museum you will instantly be brought back in time as you wind your way through a variety of memorabilia, photos and articles.
When the Germans settled to this area in the mid 1800’s, they had no idea what this place would one day become. Many of the early immigrants hoped of a new and improved way of life. They weren’t attracted to this area because of the name. In fact, the area was known as Santa Fee, not Santa Claus back then.
The first Santa Claus Post Office opened its doors in 1856. The town’s name did not peak interest until 1914 when Santa Claus’ 14th postmaster, James Martin, took it upon himself to answer the children’s letters.
