From America to Scandinavia to China, people celebrate holidays with special rituals and festivities. We invite children and families into the Museum to take a “holiday tour” of traditions happening throughout the year, particularly during the month of December. Each exhibit will feature a local group and will include décor and hands-on activities specific to their holiday celebration. For example, one exhibit might feature a Gullah storyteller, while others might focus on Hanukkah, the Chinese New Year, Christmas and more.
Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, Holiday Extravaganza is free this year! This event has sold out. Please note that the Children’s Museum will open with regular hours at 11am on Saturday, December 7.
