Santa Saturdays at the Driehaus Museum

Saturdays, December 7, 14, & 21
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
$8 Youth (6–12 years); $12 Adults   Buy tickets

Create holiday memories with the entire family! To celebrate the traditions of Gilded Age America that continue to make our winter holidays special today, the Driehaus Museum presents three Saturday mornings filled with family fun!

Throughout the morning, drop in and hear lively stories and songs from Aunt Holly, part of the beloved Chicago family who dwelt inside the holiday-decorated windows of Marshall Field & Company’s grand State Street store in the 20th century. You can also make your way down to the mansion’s lower level to create your own holiday art project, then sprinkle on the cheer while tasting festive cookies. And of course, don’t forget to visit the Ballroom to meet Santa Claus and tell him what you wish for this year!

Doors open at 9 a.m. 
Aunt Holly will begin her story at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 11:30 a.m.

Ticket includes Museum general admission.
