SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Santa Claus will visit the World of Little League®: Peter J. McGovern Museum and Official Store from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 13.

There will be free admission at the museum, 525 Montgomery Pike (U.S. 15), during Santa’s visit. He will be joined by Dugout, the Little League Baseball and Softball Mascot, in the Museum’s Connections Gallery.

“Once again, Santa will be using the museum’s amazing Global Connections Touch Table to plan his global route,” said Lance Van Auken, Little League Vice President and World of Little League Executive Director. “While he’s here, it will be a great chance for photos, so everyone should make sure they bring along their cameras.”

Not only will visitors have the opportunity to take their own photographs with the Jolly Old Elf and tour the museum at no charge, they will receive a free holiday gift (vintage Little League World Series pin) with any purchase at the Official Store.

Throughout the upcoming holidays, the museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and will be closed on Dec. 24, 25, 31, and Jan. 1. Contact the museum (570-326-3607) or check its Facebook page at for updates on store specials, weather alerts, and more.

The museum also is a collection site for the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots. New, unwrapped gifts will be accepted until Dec. 22. Anyone donating a toy valued at $10 or more, will receive a free admission ticket to the museum to use immediately or potentially as a stocking stuffer. Additional tickets may be pre-purchased as gifts.

Normally, rates for the museum are $2 for children 12 and younger, $3 for anyone 62 and older, and $5 for general admission. Children 4 and younger are admitted at no charge.
