Get into the swing of the holidays at Westport Museum! December is jam-packed with events for all ages. Bradley-Wheeler House, WM headquarters, will be decked out in Victorian finery to celebrate the winter festivities (all of them!) from Christmas and Hanukkah, to the Solstice (yule) celebrations to Kwanzaa.
WM offers plenty of holiday themed activities: tree lighting, to Santa Days, sleigh rides, Solstice Storytelling and more! The Shop at Wheeler house has unique holiday gifts you won’t find anywhere else in Westport and the toy & candy selections will have visions of sugarplums dancing in eager little eyes.
