Snowflakes, laughter, and Santa Claus (5th edition)

November 25, 2020 - January 10, 2021

Why do we celebrate Christmas on December 25? Why are Christmas trees so popular? What is the oldest known type of toy?

The Snowflakes, giggles, and Santa Clausexhibition immerses visitors in a recollection of memories of Christmas holidays, with all the delights of toys and winter activities, in addition to providing insights on the origins and evolution of certain traditions sometimes centuries old. Toys from the 1900s to 1980s, photographs and advertisements from our collection, as well as some 20 nativity scenes from foreign countries await you! A beautiful tour filled with smiles, lights, and memories for the whole family.
