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

Saturday, December 7, 2019, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Stir up your holiday cheer with a special family event at the EAA Aviation Museum. Roam the museum to enjoy the holiday decorations throughout the exhibits. Enjoy local musical, choral, and dance groups performing on various stages including Julie's Touch of Silver in their holiday revue! Other activities include writing letters to Santa, 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.

All events and museum admission is free between 10am and 3pm. Donations of unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots or non-perishable food goods for the Oshkosh Food Pantry are greatly appreciated.

Breakfast with Santa – Sold Out!

Enjoy an all-you-can eat pancake breakfast before Christmas in the Air begins! Beat the crowds, have your photo taken with Santa, and receive a special gift!

Breakfast with Santa takes place at the EAA Aviation Museum on December 7 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
