The Arms Family Museum in Youngstown is sparkling for the holiday season! Memories of Christmas Past, the annual holiday spectacular, is in its 12th year in the 1905 Arts & Crafts mansion of Olive and Wilford Arms. The seven period rooms of the Arms Family home are filled to the brim with rare, one-of-a-kind, vintage decorations that include ornaments, lighting, trees, and toys – all arranged in breathtaking vignettes that delight generations young and old. The display features many pieces from the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s collection as well as items on loan from private collectors.
This year’s exhibit, with the theme “By the Fireside”, will open November 23-January 5, 2020. Hours for the museum are Tuesday-Sunday, 12:00pm-4:00pm. On Twilight Thursdays, view the exhibit at night as the museum stays open until 7:00pm. The Museum is closed Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
The Mahoning Valley Historical Society will offer Behind the Ropes Tours, Ornament Making Workshops, and other special events in conjunction with the Memories of Christmas Past display.
