Families can enjoy a holiday brunch and share children's Christmas wish lists with Kris Kringle during Winterthur's Yuletide Brunch with Santa on Saturdays and Sundays in December (except Dec. 28 and 29). Santa will be on hand from 9 to 11 a.m. Brunch continues until 2 p.m. Families are welcome to take their own pictures with him. Afterward, visitors can ride on a shuttle to the museum, where children can make a snack for Santa's reindeer and enjoy performances by musical entertainer Silly Joe (Saturdays) or the popular children's comedian The Great Holtzie (Sundays) until noon.

Reservations are required. Brunch seating is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $34.95 per person ($17.50 for children ages 2 to 12; children under 2 are free). Brunch does not include general admission to Winterthur, which includes the Yuletide tour. For reservations, call 800-448-3883. Reservations for brunch also can be made on opentable.com.
