Holiday Open House at the Dixon and……let it snow, let it snow!

We had an amazing Holiday Open House Weekend. Our tree was lit during perfect weather at the tree lighting ceremony Saturday night. The seasonal music set the mood and the hot chocolate hit the spot as we celebrated the beginning of the holiday season.
Sunday was the official Holiday Open House. Yummy holiday treats were served and special craft tables were set up throughout the galleries for the entertainment of our smallest Dixon supporters. 

One very special Dixon supporter was present as well. Santa Claus allowed each visitor (young and old) to whisper their holiday wishes in his ear. With Santa being the jolly guy that we have all come to know and love, he took photos with each one to make the day extra special. 

The galleries were open! Each guest had the opportunity to see the exhibitions and admire the holiday decorations throughout the museum. Our Room of Wonders continued to be a big hit for the kids and the musical accompaniment, located in From Houdini to Hugo: The Art of Brian Selznick, dazzled audiences throughout the event!

Nothing makes holiday decorations stand out more than snow. Wednesday morning’s snowy weather made the Dixon a sight for sore eyes as the snow settled beautifully on the Christmas tree and museum. The rest of the property was just as stunning. We can’t wait for you to get in the holiday spirit at the Dixon!
