Grab your flatcap and don your finest threads for a night of fun and revelry as you step into the smoky underworld of the 1920s. Explore the Museum’s streets and alleys and hear of tales about Birmingham’s most notorious gangs.

Santa and his elves are getting ready for the big day. The presents are being mined, the Christmas trees are being planted and the Sugarplum Fairies are busy making delicious treats. But mischief is afoot – the Rat King and his army are trying to ruin Christmas! Santa has called in the Nutcracker General and his friends to keep the Rat King and his pesky partners at bay. Will you step into this magical world to help them save Christmas?

Timeslots for Santa Hunts will be every half an hour throughout the day excluding 12.30pm.

Santa is making a welcome return to the Museum this Christmas, with a brand new storyline for Santa Hunts for 2021. This year it looks like our elves need some help from you to make sure Santa is awake and ready to deliver gifts to good children everywhere.
