Casa Santa

As museum goers, we usually have this notion that a museum is and will be about History (artifacts), and the Arts (paintings). But this time, we found a museum that is neither of the two. It also coincides on the favorite and the longest season for us Filipinos, Christmas Season.

Santa Claus is the most popular Christmas personality who is believed to give away presents to nice children around the world during Christmas Eve with his sleigh pulled by his army of reindeer (Hello Rudolph!). We found out that there is a museum about Santa Claus here in the Philippines! Jardin de Miramar’s Casa Santa takes Santa Claus on a whole new level.

Casa Santa takes us into a different Christmas world. The name of the house itself, Casa Santa, is just a hint of what is behind its doors. But it is not the house of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus like the one in North Pole; rather it is a museum for the many Santa Claus and Christmas collection of the owner of Jardin de Miramar.

It is a 50-year old remodelled two-storey house found within Jardin de Miramar in Antipolo, it currently holds a 3,000 (and counting) item Santa collection from 64 countries. What started as a simple Christmas gift has grown into over 3000 (and counting) Santas, Mrs. Claus, and other Christmas related objects that filled the two-storey plus the house. But don’t expect to see every Santa in a red suit. Each room and every corner are decorated with hundreds of varying sizes, colors, and looks of Santa Claus, including Santas of different races and a Yoda wearing a Santa outfit.

What a way to relive our childish fantasies, and to end our year in a museum.

FUN FACT: This isn’t only open on Christmas season, but all year round. Isn’t that wonderful?DSC_1769
