I feel like there could have been more done with this exhibition! It was very short and had a lot of advertising spots in it which I just walked right by. There were not many countries covered in the "how they celebrate Christmas" section although the Finnish section was great. It would be better if it was more interactive. The... More

You access from Santa Claus Holiday Village reception and through a path flanked by elves and various elements of Lappish Christmas culture, you arrive in a room where you meet Santa. It has been a magic moment for my daughter and myself as we venture there not knowing what to find. And right there, in front us, no line and... More

The exhibition about tradition of Christmas and differences in celebrating it in different countries is very interesting. The only problem is that you cannot have a look at the complete exhibition without lining up for a picture with Santa Claus. The picture with Santra Claus himself is very expensive (€ 40.- and up)

We visited Santa here in early November and had a wonderful experience. The kids absolutely loved it. Santa gave them plenty of time and we gladly paid for the photos and video afterwards. The price was surprisingly reasonable as well.

This was a fun stop for the family and they do a great job here interacting and keeping the Christmas theme. There is a lot of local items for sale but make sure to look at the other shops in the complex as well. Only downside was the cost for pictures with Santa. A little too high for my taste... More

Santa photos had long waiting time and when you finally got to meet him, we were very rushed through with having the photo taken, hardly time to think of seating position even. For 80AUD we would have preferred to have an 'ordinary' pic and a 'fun' one, both wouldn't have taken more than 10 mins but we were rushed through... More

I was nice and pieceful meeting with Santa Claus. We have time to discuss some 5 min : apparrently in summer time is not as busy as in December in his village. We bought a little souvenir photo of our meeting which was 20 euro or something. The permanent exhibition about Christmas was not big put rich in information. One... More

Christmas Exhibition is nice but not the Santa's room and himself. He seemed to be bored as no one stopped there for foto shooting.
