“Save your money and buy postcards in the shop”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We toured this miniscule museum on top of the Christmas store. It was mainly trees that were on loan and ornaments. There was limited variety. The floor was uneven. The only display of interest was the naty old version of Santa and his mean sidekick. You can't take photos, so save your money and buy a postcard.

“Don't know what the fuss is about”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

It's a shop full of Christmas ornaments. It's large and there is a ton of selection, but I'm not sure why one would stop here on holiday.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We enjoyed learning how certain traditions came about. We liked the explanation of the different types of ornaments. This could be boring for children.

“Eternal Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Even if you don't visit during the holiday season, just go inside this museum and you will feel like its christmas! Santas, reindeers, colourful christmas trees and decors etc. It is also basically a shop so you could be enticed to buy those colorful items.
