Plan a Visit with Santa

Creston Museum Celebrating in COVID, Daily Dose of History, News & Articles Leave a Comment

As it happens, Santa loves museums. It’s a little known fact, but they’re his favourite places to visit when he takes one of his rare vacations from the North Pole. So when Santa realised he couldn’t come to Creston in person this year to visit with all the good little girls and boys, he called us to ask if we could help him out. Of course we were happy to!

Virtual Visits with Santa

Saturday, December 12, 2020

2:00 – 4:00 PM

Call the Creston Museum at 250-428-9262 to sign up for a special personal visit with Santa on Saturday, December 12. Then, watch for an email from the Creston Museum ( that tells you how to join him on Zoom (Santa has recently discovered Zoom and he thinks it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread).

Donations are very much appreciated! All donations will be shared between the Creston Museum and PAWS (Santa loves animals, too, you know. How would he do his job without the reindeer to pull his sleigh?). You can make a donation with a credit card or etransfer when you call to sign up, or click here to go to our secure donations page at If you do that, though, please include a note that it’s for a visit with Santa, so we’ll know to share it with PAWS.

Don’t worry – COVID won’t keep Santa from making his rounds on Christmas Eve! He’s an essential service! He, Mrs. Claus, the elves, and the reindeer have been isolating themselves up there at the North Pole, making sure they all stay healthy and well so they can travel around the world delivering presents. You can follow him – and find lots of information and games – on NORAD’s Santa tracker website.
