The Paley Center for Media in New York City has reopened with the return of its classic holiday extravaganza, PaleyLand.

The cultural institution’s museum in New York will welcome back visitors for the first in-person event since it began virtual programming in March of 2020, after closing due to the global pandemic.

At PaleyLand, visitors of all ages can watch exclusive holiday screenings and meet beloved characters from notable holiday classics, see a live holiday-themed LEGO demo from LEGOMasters, take photos with Santa and a stunning seven-foot menorah, play their favorite video games, and enjoy the newest centerpiece, The Paley Express, a magical winter wonderland holiday train display, along with much, much more.

In addition, Paleyland will offer arts and crafts activities and games for children and families, and will feature interactive, social media holiday photo experiences in the magical winter wonderland of PaleyLand. Visitors are encouraged to share their festive moments on social media by tagging @paleycenter and using hashtags #Paley #PaleyLand.

New events will be added to PaleyLand throughout the month. To learn more about the full schedule of holiday activities, please visit
