Christmas Traditions


Can’t get enough Christmas? Learn the history behind some of the most iconic items of the Christmas season from the comfort of your home in this on demand virtual program.



Collections Manager, Kait Bergert, shares a special behind-the-scenes look at ornaments, lights, and other Christmas decorations from inside our storage facility. Fun for the whole family, our “Santa Spotters” help us explore what we think we know about the jolly old man while still preserving the magic of Christmas.

At only $10, this program would also make a great gift or stocking stuffer for anyone on your shopping list!
