It’s Christmas time and the Santas from the Museum collection are up to their old tricks – they’re hiding in the exhibits! Find every Santa hidden in the Museum and you could win a great prize.

Santa Search Canterbury Museum

The Great Museum Santa search is an annual tradition at Canterbury Museum.

To get started, pick up an entry form from the foyer. It will have some clues and a guide to keep track of how many Santas you’ve seen.

When you think you’ve spotted every Santa, count them up and write the number on your entry form. Get it right and you’ll be entered in the prize draw.

The Museum Santas are part of a collection that belonged to the late Laurie King. He was well known locally as King Santa, and he and his miniature Santas brought fun and laughter into kids’ lives for almost 56 years.

The Great Museum Santa Search has been an annual tradition for more than a decade.

The competition takes place from 30 November 2019 to 5 January 2020 and is only open to children aged 15 years and under.
