Ditch the busy schedules and bring your loved ones together for some quality holiday fun this winter!

Olde World Christmas
Strawberry Hill Museum’s Olde World Christmas has been a tradition for Kansas Citians for many years. Each year it’s adorned with elaborate décor reflecting how the historic Victorian Queen Ann Style home may have been dressed during the time it was lived in by the Cruise-Scroggs family. Along with this the museum’s ethnic exhibits are updated to showcase Eastern European holiday customs, and additional limited-time exhibits display traditions from Mexico, Africa and Italy. You can even reserve your spot for special nighttime tours that include drinks and dessert. Olde World Christmas runs November 4, 2017 – January 7, 2018.
