The Historic 1935 Santa Statue is "dedicated to the children of the world." Standing 22-feet tall and weighing 40-tons, the Santa Statue just underwent a full-restoration, returning the iconic figure of Santa back to his original condition. The public is free to visit the statue during the day or when it is beautifully lit at night.

A good spot to get a family photo. There are 4 areas to visit at this location. Younger kids might enjoy the site, older kids of teenager age might be a lil tart about have family photo.

First Santa Statue in Santa Claus Indiana. Neat area of shops and museum post office and a amusement park. We stopped early in the morning for pictures and nothing was open. Looked like a lot of fun.

What can I say, it is a statue of Santa Claus, fits with the name of the town and the Christmas theme.

Nice statue to stop and see if you go by the museum and post office. If you have younger kids I would recommend it.

Its a statue of Santa Claus. I would suggest going out of your way for the statue, but if you are visiting the museum, take a walk up the path to see the statue of Santa Claus.
