Holidays Around the World and Through Time

Holidays Around the World and Through Time

November 23, 2021 – January 9, 2022

During a Wee Winter Wonderland, the museum decorates a number of miniatures to depict holiday celebrations around the world and through time. These miniatures are designated by special didactics throughout the galleries. The didactics are also translated in Spanish.

Home for the Holidays:  Be sure to check out the Home for the Holidays section on each of the webpages for the artifacts below. Here we have curated our favorite craft and recipe ideas, along with holiday playlists, to bring a little of these holiday celebrations from around the world and through time to your home. Happy Holidays!
