As Richmond legends since 1936, Legendary Santa and the lovely Snow Queen have been delighting families for 83 years. It all started on the 7th floor of the historic Miller & Rhoads department store and now 25,000 children and families head to the Children’s Museum to continue, or start, their family tradition.
The Children's Museum Downtown hosts a special holiday themed program that includes an opportunity for preschools to ice skate and participate in a special interactive storytime with holiday characters!
(Please note, the "Start Your Reservation" link below takes you to an Eventbrite page to register for Preschool Ice Skating.)
