Santa ClausSanta will visit families at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands at two pajama parties, Friday, Dec. 5 and Saturday Dec. 6, from 6-8 p.m. A third pajama party is scheduled for the Victor Valley Museum in Apple Valley on Saturday, Dec. 13 from 6-8 p.m. Advance reservations are required for each party.

Pick one evening to bring your family to play holiday games, hear holiday stories, make winter crafts, enjoy refreshments, visit with some live animals (at the main museum), and have a photo op with Santa. You can wear your pajamas and bring your favorite teddy bear to keep you company. Please arrive by 6 p.m. to enjoy the whole party.

“Families love this program and return year after year,” said Jolene Redvale, curator of education. “Our relaxed, seasonal atmosphere gives everyone a chance to enjoy each other’s company while they take part in long-held holiday traditions including story time, snacking, craft-making and, best of all, the thrill of talking to Santa Claus himself.”

Cost is $10 per person. Under age 1 is free with paid adult. Each admission includes all holiday crafts and activities, a chat with Santa, and refreshments. Space is limited and fills quickly—only reservations with payment received by 4:30 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 3, will be eligible to register for either party at the museum in Redlands. Reservations must be received by Thursday, Dec. 11 for the event at the Victor Valley Museum. No payments will be accepted at Santa’s PJ Party, and the museum is unable to give refunds for this program.
