Meet Santa!

For those who have moved here with kids, then you cannot miss the Legendary Santa at the Children’s Museum of Richmond! Before children see and meet Santa, they get to explore the Holiday Village. Children then get to meet the Snow Queen before going to meet Santa. It is a magical treat that children will love! Check it out here: http://www.c-mor.org/full-menu/legendary-santa/
