Holiday Tree Lighting


Join us on the Museum’s East Terrace as we usher in the holiday season with treats, a sampling of our holiday entertainment, and plenty of good cheer. The festivities rev up around 5:00 p.m. with 6abc Action News meteorologist Adam Joseph broadcasting live during the event. At 5:30 p.m., Museum Director Timothy Rub leads the countdown to the tree lighting. Then head inside to enjoy Wednesday Night’s late hours and Pay What You Wish admission (beginning at 5:00 p.m.).
