A Victorian Christmas this year will include a sub-theme of Clement Moore’s classic “A Visit From St. Nicholas”.  Visitors will enjoy perusing the decorated rooms and Christmas Trees, while learning about the classic poem and the rise of the popularity of what we know today as the Classic American Santa Claus.

The exhibit features 4 live trees, with period style decorations. Exhibit rooms will take you on a time-traveling journey from 1840 to 1890. A 12 Days Of Christmas Scavenger Hunt will entertain the youngsters as they search rooms and hallways for objects that represent the 12 objects mentioned in the song. A special treat for those finding the Piper Piping (press the button on the bagpipes to hear “Scotland, The Brave”).

Open Wednesdays through Saturdays 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. No reservation needed, however if you plan a group tour (20 or more) or a School Field Trip Tour, reservations are required. Special pricing for group tours.
