Do you know everything about X-Mas? If not, please come here to learn everything about the tradition of X-Mas tree decorations, to find out the difference between Santa and Father Frost. Take money with you as in the same building you will find large fairy selection of X-Mas tree decorations. This place will definitly bring back you childhood memories!

A self guided tour with English signage. Some of the collections are privately owned. Lot of history and interesting to see the evolution of how Christmas was celebrate then in comparison to today.

A bit of disappointment. Definitely i would not pay next time 4 euro for several small rooms with old Christmas decoration. The shop where museum located is much more impressive.

This store has a great selection of Christmas items in numerous displays located on several floors. It is fun to take your time and allow yourself to be a kid again. I would caution you to shop and compare if you have time. But also, be aware that the same owner owns several other Christmas stores nearby. We saved a... More

This museum is inside a gigantic Christmas store. There was a nice history about the evolution of celebrating Christmas and what came to be Santa Claus.
