As the weather turns cold make sure to visit Thanksgiving Point for many indoor and outdoor activities this winter! The Museum of Natural Curiosity is a 40,000 square-foot building featuring 400 interactive and education displays for kids of all ages and abilities. The Museum of Ancient Life is a one- of-a-kind dinosaur museum with 60 complete skeletal displays from many species of dinosaurs. Both offer families a unique and fun way to play, learn, and be together while staying out of the cold winter weather.

While the indoors are always warm and fun at the Museum of Natural Curiosity and Museum of Ancient Life, 2016 marks the first year of Luminaria: Experience the Light in the Ashton Gardens — an outdoor experience like nothing you’ve ever seen. Luminaria features a million lights in a variety of holiday “beats” like S’Mores Village, Reindeer Woods, and Candy Cane Lane!

Guests will also surely notice a 120-foot tree of lights — basically, the perfect holiday selfie! There will be something for everyone to see and do at this event. Dress warm for sure, but you’ll also have lots of hot chocolate and holiday treats to purchase at the event. Luminaria is sure to become a new holiday tradition for all families.

Luminaria is open only in the evenings from November 21-December 31 (closed Sundays, Thanksgiving and Christmas).

Tickets are limited. Visit for details and ticketing information.
