If you were going to visit Santa, where is the first place you'd go? A Winter Wonderland park, perhaps, maybe a shopping centre or a department store? There's also Hamleys toy shop. There are lots of possibilities, but most people probably wouldn't say, 'I know, I'll take the kids to a museum.' Well, it's time to start thinking a little differently, because The Museum of London have four fun family activities over the Christmas period, including a visit from Santa Claus.
