Now in its eighth year,
Now in its eighth year, the Eiteljorg Museum’s Jingle Rails is a journey to the Great American West – the real West and the West of the imagination. Watch nine trains wind past the local treasures of downtown Indianapolis, including the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station, the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Lucas Oil Stadium, where you will hear veteran Colts radio announcer Bob Lamey call a game. The trains then head through the national parks of the American West, passing legendary sites, including grand railway lodges, Northwest Coast Native villages, and wonders both natural and human-made—Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite Falls, Old Faithful, the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam and much more.

It’s cold outside . .
It’s cold outside . . . but it’s FUN (and warm) in here! See the sparkling lights, experience the warm traditions, and enjoy all the fun of winter weather without the soggy socks! You can even become an elf in training and earn elf ears by participating in winter activities in Jolly Days, including skating in socks on an indoor “pond,” climbing and sliding on the Snow Castle, “ice” fishing, pretend-baking holiday goodies in the Tradition Kitchen and indoor snowball fights. For many visitors, a highlight of their trip to Jolly Days includes a visit and photo with Santa who will be waiting to hear what’s on the wish lists of young museum visitors.
