Christmas 2015 – Celebrate Christmas at the American Museum
Thursday 26 November – Sunday 20 December 2015
Tuesday – Sunday, 12noon-4.30pm
Every Christmas the Museum is transformed for the festive season, and this year we celebrate winter traditions. Each Period Room will be redisplayed to show a different seasonal pastime. In a Massachusetts Tavern, Mrs Conkey’s table is covered with food as she prepares her Thanksgiving feast. Elsewhere a family warms itself with hot punch after a bracing winter sleigh ride.
Sneaky snowmen have hidden themselves throughout our Period Rooms. Can you spot them all?
The Christmas shops will be open throughout this period, selling a range of original Christmas gifts and decorations. On Saturday 28 November and Sunday 29 November the Museum is hosting a Christmas craft fair. Local craftspeople will be selling their unique handmade gifts, perfect for the festive season.
