Holiday Celebrations 2019

Celebrate the season of gift-giving with the Cleveland History Center! Beginning November 22, guests are invited to explore some of the holiday season’s most beloved traditions while learning about the gifts that have delighted Clevelanders young and old throughout history.

Among the highlights of the season are pop-up exhibits in the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum exploring the tradition of holiday shopping in Cleveland’s most luxurious department stores, and a selection of antique toys in our Cleveland Starts Here® Community Cases. Young visitors can also take part in daily activities such as holiday-themed crafts and scavenger hunts all season long!

Looking for a festive night out? Spend an evening in our Hay-McKinney Mansion for our Ghosts of Christmas Past Candlelight Tours! As dusk settles on our historic mansion, guests are invited to explore its beautifully-decorated rooms in an immersive tour experience led by our museum staff. Tours will be offered every Friday and Saturday from Nov. 22-Dec. 14, with additional tours offered Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 19-22.
