The Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees, benefiting Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, will run from Saturday, November 18- December 31, 2023, at the Museum of Science & History - Pink Palace.  

Begin your visit with a stroll through the magical Festival of Trees that fills the Pink Palace Mezzanine with beautifully decorated trees. Once inside the exhibit, children of all ages will be charmed by the animated characters set in the magical snowy setting of The Enchanted Forest. Teddy bears beckon, elves are busy at work and penguins play in the snow. Be sure to check out the model trains. Finally, Santa cheerfully greets guests at the end of the Forest and poses for holiday photos. Be sure to check out the spectacularly sweet gingerbread village and penguin pond. A perfect holiday tradition for the whole family to enjoy!

Buy your tickets today. Please purchase tickets online in advance to ensure entry to the Enchanted Forest. You may also purchase tickets in person. Available dates & time slot options may be limited/sold out – especially during weekends.

Santa will be joining us this year and he looks forward to receiving all of the children’s lists and wishes.
