A Magical Christmas Eve at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum
November 23, 2018 - January 6, 2019
The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum kicks off the Holiday Season the day after Thanksgiving with a new exhibition entitled, A Magical Christmas Eve at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, which will open at noon on Friday, November 23, 2018, at 295 West Avenue and run though January 6, 2019.
During Queen Victoria’s reign, Prince Albert introduced the Christmas tree in England, a tradition that became very popular in the U.S. in the 1850s. For the past 30 years, visitors from all across the region have come to the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum to learn about this holiday tradition and immerse in its splendor and beauty.
The story of the day before Christmas at the Mansion will start with an overview of this holiday celebration, decade by decade, from the 1850s to the 1930s. The Dining Room will display a Christmas Eve feast, and throughout the Museum, displays of tabletop as well as tall, lavishly decorated trees will welcome visitors to one of the most cherished holiday destinations in New England.
Tour hours: Wednesday through Sunday, noon, 1, 2, and 3 p.m.
General Admission: $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $8 for children and young adults, ages 8-18.
