Polar Express Adventure | Southern Museum

Polar Express Adventure 2017

Polar Express Adventure at the Southern Museum

Announcement: Polar Express Adventure will not be rescheduled. The Southern Museum would like to thank everyone for their support of our Polar Express Adventure and we are sorry that the event had to be cancelled. We did not mean to literally recreate the snow of the North Pole in Georgia but hope that everyone had a safe and warm weekend! Unfortunately, due to the numerous logistics and individuals involved in the event, we will not be able to reschedule for this holiday season. Any tickets purchased for the event may be used for regular admission to the museum. However, if you would like a refund, please call 770-427-2117, ext. 3184.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  Staff hope to see you at the Museum again soon and we wish everyone a wonderful and jolly holiday season.

Immerse yourself in the classic story re-told throughout the museum, with vignettes highlighting the plot and interactive performers bringing the story to life!
