Journey back through time on a guided tour of the Historic Village to meet characters from the past as they celebrate the Christmas holiday. This special program is different than a usual daytime visit to the museum. Using the Historic Village as its canvas, costumed tour guides will lead guests through the snow-covered streets in the year 1849 when New York declared Christmas a New York State holiday. Enjoy music, dancing and tree lighting as you visit village homes and businesses to see how residents react to the news of Christmas as a holiday! Each stop will include a 5-8 minute vignette depicting a holiday tradition or activity.
