Visit Santa

Visit Santa

Visit Santa Nov. 27–Dec. 24!

Santa is very busy this time of year, but he's made some special arrangements with The Children's Museum! There are four ways you can visit with Santa in 2020:

Visit the Big Guy in person

You can visit Santa in person in Jolly Days. See all details below.

To see which Santa will be on duty, click here.

For everyone's safety, Santa will remain in his sleigh while wearing a face mask. Families will be able to chat with him at a safe social distance, take a photo, and bring a letter to drop in our Letters to Santa box.

Photo Options

Purchase a package from our on-site professional photographer, take their own family photo, or both! Masks are required. Share your #MasksatTCM memories with us! Photo packages are priced from $15 to $63.
