From Gingerbread Houses to Countdown to Noon and all things in between, our calendar is stuffed full of indoor holiday events. Create extraordinary holiday memories with your family at our special Jolly Days events. 

Stay warm indoors and do all the holiday things with us!

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 three ways you can visit with Santa in 2020:

  • Send Santa a letter online. We have a special partnership with Santa's team of techie elves! Click here to send him a letter online.
  • Arrange a virtual visit with Santa. Click here for more information about scheduling a special virtual visit with the Jolly Old Elf.
  • Visit the Big Guy in person. Click here for more information about visiting Santa in person in Jolly Days. 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 and purchase a package from our on-site professional photographer, take their own family photo, or both!
