We enjoyed visiting Santa's house. My friend had letters drawn up for his niece and nephew and I sat and wrote post cards for my children, grandchild and best friend. My husband is not usually the novelty shopping store but given the location is the NORTH POLE what else would one expect to see but all kinds of Christmas decorations... More

Can you imagine what I thought when I saw a sign saying North Pole and can you imagine how excited I was to see that Santas House was there ! Of course we had to go what a great visit it was to see all the Christmas gear. And best of all Santa was actually there, if you have your... More

This is THE place to visit in North Pole. The building is adorned with hand-painted decorations, there's a giant Santa statue in the parking lot, and the inside of the building is what every child would imagine Santa's workshop must look like. The one thing that separates this from all other Christmas gift stores is that many of their items,... More

Santa Claus House has an amazing assortment of Christmas decor and ornaments, apparel, collectibles, made in Alaska items, as well as a selection of unique toys. Santa is available to take pictures with. There is a six-foot plush moose and polar bear, and many themed Christmas trees. Outside, is a 40-foot two-dimensional Santa.

Love this place,super cute and very different, although Santa doesn't start coming around till November but the store is cute and lots of different things. Expect prices to be a little expensive but that's Alaska for you.

I was hoping for a jovial Merry Christmas greeting, even if Santa wasn't there. I got some bored looking employees who were just north of "sullen". I know it is off-season, and a Monday morning, too, but could we have just a little more of that Ho! Ho! Ho! spirit, please?

Santa's House is quite an extensive store. Naturally, there's lots of Christmas ornaments, Christmas apparel, and clothing with "North Pole Alaska" emblazoned on them. I bought cute t-shirts for my nieces and nephews - dark green with "Dear Santa I Can Explain" lettering. Be aware - prices are high, but you may score a deal on a sale. Some merchandise... More

Really cool store much nicer than I thought it would be. Thought it would be full of junk but had some great stuff. Got a few things to give out this coming season.
