Do you have a Christmas-related collection that you’d like to include in our exhibit on a short-term loan basis? Let others enjoy your collection of Santa’s angels, vintage toys, trains, etc. The display officially starts on Saturday, December 16th with an open house, and runs through mid-January. Call Bob at the Museum at 413-591-8702 for more information.Your items will add to the joy of the season.

Please donate your unwanted Christmas items in good condition. Manufactured or handmade, we need them to decorate our Museum display rooms for the holidays. We need: tree ornaments, garlands, tree lighting and bubble lights, Lemax and Dept. 56 buildings and figures, and any Christmas table decoration. So don’t throw them out! Drop-off is at the Museum at 817 South Main Street, now through Thursday, November 30th – Monday through Thursday mornings from 9 am to 12 noon, and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm.
