How much is it?
A visit to see Father Christmas is £10 per child (including one child admission to the museum for the day of the visit).
Any visitors in your party (age 3 and over) without a ticket to see Father Christmas will only need to purchase a museum admission ticket or show a valid annual museum pass. You can buy admission tickets on the day. Once you purchase a museum ticket, you can visit us free for a year. See our museum admission prices.
Please note, if you have a child under 3 in your party without a Meet Father Christmas ticket, they won’t receive a gift or keepsake ticket, or be able to take part in the reindeer dust activity.
