The Gilded Age of Christmas holiday tours

Tuesday, November 20, 2018

See the glimmer and shine of a truly Victorian Christmas throughout the mansion with early 1900s style ornaments and decorations, with originals on exhibit in the galleries, to reflect light in an age without electricity. Dresdens, kugels, mercury and blown glass ornaments, and glass icicles are combined with paper scrap, fabric and tinsel to decorate the packages, ornaments, Christmas tree and greens. Visit the Museum Shop too for unique gifts, toys, books, decorations and candy. Groups of 10 or more should contact the site to arrange for a group reservation.
