Santa’s Grotto at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

It’s such a busy time of the year for Santa, yet he still finds time to pay a festive visit to Birmingham.

We’ve been tracking his movements closely and discovered that he’ll be vising the Museum & Art Gallery right here in the city centre.   During December, you can find him at the Museum on the dates listed below.

As well as Santa you can expect twinkling lights and piles of snow.   Each child will receive a gift and a unique memento along with a special printed photograph of their visit to see Santa.

Santa’s Grotto will be open on the following dates:

Saturday 7 December
Sunday 8 December
Saturday 14 December
Sunday 15 December
Saturday 21 December
Sunday 22 December

The time slots are:

10.30am – 11.30am
11.30am – 12.30pm
1.30pm – 2.30pm
2.30pm – 3.30pm

Tickets are £6.50 per child.

Pre-booking is essential and you can find out all the information here.

On 21 and 22 December the Museum will have a British Sign Language Santa’s Grotto from 3.30pm until 4.30pm, where a BSL interpreter will accompany Santa.
