The Great Museum Santa Search

This exhibition is no longer on display at the Museum.

The Great Museum Santa Search is back and it’s more fun than ever before! Bring your family and join in the fun searching high and low for our hidden Santas.

Museum SantaIf you help us find ALL our missing Santas you could win a fantastic prize. All you need to do is count the total number of toy Santas you see and record it on the entry form (available at the Museum). To help you get started, there are some clues on the entry form and also a guide to help you keep track of those hidden Santas.

The Santas are part of a collection that belonged to the late Laurie King. He was well known locally as ‘King Santa’ and brought fun and laughter into the lives of children in hospitals, playcentres and at community charity events for almost 56 years.

For more than 10 years thousands of children have entered The Great Museum Santa Search competition and the event has become an annual favourite for many Canterbury families.

The Great Museum Santa Search competition takes place until 7 January 2018. Free activity, donations appreciated.
