The Welcome Center is the heart of the Dickens Victorian Village experience; located at 647 Wheeling Avenue. We encourage our visitors to make this their first stop so our Ambassadors may greet them and assist in planning their visit. The Welcome Center is home to the Curiosity Shoppe, The Imagination Station, and the Educational Side of Dickens. Our Ambassadors will share the story of how Dickens Victorian Village began and the process for creating our unique "characters". Here, you may purchase tickets for all events and pick up our Visitor's Guide.
