Santa Claus Museum.

Santa Claus Museum

Opening the museum requires a volunteer from the Visitor's Information Center (across from the Confederacy Museum water tower) to come out, unlock, turn on the air conditioning, and dust the cabinets. We called the Chamber of Commerce and they arranged a person (Tess) to come out and open up the museum for us at 10 AM.

We could not believe all of the shelves and shelves of Santas when we walked in! It took us an hour of gazing and marveling before we called it a day. If you like Santa Claus -- this place is for you!
