Experience the spirit of
Christmas in Charleston
The Charleston Santa
Explore Charleston and the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry invite families to visit The Charleston Santa, the area’s newest holiday festivity. Beginning Friday, November 24, The Best Friend train museum, conveniently situated between the downtown visitor center and the Children's Museum, will host The Charleston Santa. Each weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas, children are invited to visit with the jolly old elf himself. Each family receives a free picture to commemorate the occasion. Attendees are encouraged to contribute to the joy by helping Explore Charleston and the Children’s Museum reach their goal to “fill the train” with new, unwrapped toys supporting Toys for Tots.
There is no charge for the event, though reservations are required since space is limited. To secure your spot on the nice list, reserve your free, timed ticket at thecharlestonsanta.com.
The Charleston Santa welcomes families Nov. 24 (10:00am-6:00pm); Nov. 25 - 26, Dec. 2 - 3, Dec. 9 - 10, Dec. 16 - 17 (10:00am-4:00pm); Dec. 22 (10:00am-6:00pm) and Dec. 23 (10:00am-4:00pm).
