The Indiana Welcome Center features six animated displays depicting scenes from the holiday classic "A Christmas Story." The displays were first showcased in 2003 at Macy's in New York City. The scenes include: Higbee’s Department Store, A Hero’s Dream, Flick’s Tongue and the Triple Dog Dare, It’s a Major Award, Santa’s Mountain at Higbee’s, The Bumpus Hounds and The Parker Living Room. 

You can also have your picture taken with Santa and stop in the gift shop for "A Christmas Story" merchandise including your very own leg lamp souvenir.

Visitor Safety: Guests to the Indiana Welcome Center are required to wear masks (all adults and children who are old enough to walk). Hand sanitizer stations will be available to guests as they visit the exhibit, Santa and the gift shop. Six-foot markers will be placed on the floor throughout the exhibit so visitors can enjoy the exhibit safely.
