Buddy the Elf visits The Discovery Center

Buddy The Elf to Visit The DC on December 19!

UPDATE: We’re sorry to say that Buddy The Elf got stuck in the storm on his way to The Discovery Center and he’s waiting for Rudolph to guide him back home! The Museum will be CLOSED on Saturday, December 19 to continue snow removal.

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! 🎵

Buddy the Elf will be traveling through the seven levels of the candy cane forest 🎄, past the sea of swirly twirly gumdrops 🍭 and then walking through the Lincoln Tunnel (and traveling Upstate) to make a special trip to The Discovery Center on Saturday, December 19 from 11AM-1PM.

Come meet Buddy (from a safe distance, of course), play in Santa’s Workshop and view our Gingerbread Display!
