Santa Pancake Breakfast

Meet the Jolly Old Elf Face-to-Face

Ho, ho, ho! Every December, Santa Claus comes to town for final checks on his “Naughty or Nice” list, and his sleigh makes a special stop at the Virginia Discovery Museum for our Santa Pancake Breakfast. Peruse menus personalized for your family and enjoy a merry meal together, then meet the jolly old elf face-to-face – right at your table! This event is one of the Museum’s major annual fundraisers, and proceeds support the Sponsored Admission Program.
