Last Santa Saturday at the Driehaus Museum: Yes, it is not free to see Santa in the beautiful and warm confines of this exquisite museum. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children between the ages of 6-12. But that ticket also gets you into the museum which is hosting a Victorian holiday complete with vintage Marshall Field & Co. window decorations and free cookies. Doors open at 9 am, storytelling by Aunt Holly a half hour later and Santa is in the ballroom.
