    The Museum so very strange, not very large that visit does more than half an hour. You have a tour of Christmas from different centuries. For children it is very educational to see how everything has been transformed and magnitude. Shop Christmas that a very kind gentleman you insist and insist you visit before you get to the Museum deserves special mention. the store itself is a true spectacle, the truth. Be careful because you spend.

    Not to be missed even if you do not enter the museum itself just a ride inside the store (HUGE) to get the Christmas spirit even in August. Christmas trees moving rides and starry sky is what awaits you

  • Nothing to do in Easter Day , this museum is open do we go visit. I love shop of mesuem for tourist just visit the shop and you will get everything you need.
  • Most people seems to write about the store, and not the museums within the store. The museum was very nice and talks about the development of Christmas from pre-christian till today (although not going deep enough over the Roman ancestor that also was the largest holiday in the Roman world pre Christianity). It talked a bit about different versions and how it have come together. I definitely think it was worth the time. Also gives a greater understanding to all parts of the store.
  • We enjoyed our visit, as the museum explains the evolution of the celebration of Christmas, especially of the Christmas tree and its ornaments. It has several trees decorated with beautiful handmade decorations dating back 100 years or more. Also a large variety of traditional handmade ornaments, many from private collections on loan to the museum.It is not boring if you are interested in the Christmas tradition. ****
  • Overload of Christmas items. Very pretty even to just browse. Prices are high, but lots of multi lingual staff on hand who are eager to help. Gets flooded with tour boat bus loads.
  • If you love Xmas you will enjoy this place. You can buy Christmas decorations all year long
