Celebrate Like It’s 1799 At The Knox Museum In Thomaston
There is something about the holiday season and with such history and tradition it’s nice to get a glimpse of how the holidays were in our U.S. history. One place that does this extremely well is the Knox Museum in Thomaston.
The Knox Museum is an interesting place any time of year but especially during the holiday season as they immerse you in sparkling splendor with several different events.
“Lights Over Montpelier” are a holiday lights display that takes over the Knox Museum property. Each night at dusk from December 3rd to January 7th there are displays of trees lit by sparkling lights, garlands and candles all in a drive through display.
For a more up close and personal experience, the Knox Museum is hosting a “Holiday Splendor” party set for December 4th at 6pm. You can party like it’s 1799! The historic museum will be decked out in full holiday splendor serving cocktails, plates of savories and sweets all among the grand fully decorated rooms with several tables of treats and colonial punches with music provided by "All That Jazz". Tickets are available at the door for this lavish event for $45.
If FREE is a little more on your budget, take the entire family for several Holiday Open House Events. The Knox Museum will be open on Sunday, December 5th, and Saturday & Sunday December 11th & 12th from 1pm-4pm. This is a perfect way to enjoy the splendor of period decorations as they adorn this living history museum. Every room in the building will be decorated and lit up just as they were when Henry & Lucy Know use to be alive and lived there.
Although it is free for the holiday preview experience, they suggest a non perishable food donation to support the Thomaston Food Pantry. Enjoy
