Aviation Comes Alive

The EAA Aviation Museum is far from a dusty archive. It's alive and vibrant with speakers, movies, special events, and more.

Christmas in the Air

Celebrate the holidays with EAA’s annual Christmas in the Air, a free community event for all ages!

Christmas in the Air

Please check back for information about our 2021 event in the fall.

For more than 17 years, Christmas in the Air has been a winter tradition at EAA. With lots of holiday décor in store, this special museum event is one for the whole family. Roam the museum to enjoy the holiday decorations throughout the exhibits, while you take in local musical, choral, and dance groups performing on various stages! Other activities include writing letters to Santa, enjoying cookies and milk, and face painting.

Amidst all the fun, do not miss the arrival of Santa Claus as he flies in by helicopter at noon to visit with all of the children! Have your picture taken with Santa, or take your own family photos in staged areas throughout the museum.

Before the event, you can also enjoy Breakfast with Santa, an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at the museum! Beat the crowds, have your photo taken with Santa, and get a special gift!
