Celebrate the holiday season by enjoying a special tea and Christmas story reading with Mrs. Claus. Following this special time with Mrs. Claus, all the younger guests will have time to make a special clock to take home and at noon spend time visiting with Santa in the Museum’s spacious marble rotunda. All the tea’s guests are encouraged to dress in their fancy and finest attire for this special occasion and bring along their own cameras to capture all the special moments – including the visit with Santa.

The tea includes assorted sweets, scones with jam, and tea or hot chocolate. Children age four and up are invited to attend the tea accompanied by an adult. Cost for the tea is $18 per child and $12 for each adult. Included are making the clock, the story reading, a visit with Santa, and admission to the Museum.
