Throughout December, the Museum will present seasonal offerings.
From Thursday, December 26, through Wednesday, January 1, holiday activities are planned daily, including a Winter Family Studio, a Holiday Family Gallery Tour, gallery tours focusing on the Christmas Story in Art, a Holiday Drawing Activity in the Great Stair Hall Balcony, and concerts ranging from the Philadelphia Chorus to Nashirah, the Jewish Chorale of Greater Philadelphia. The week concludes with a New Year’s Day Film Marathon: Back to the Future.
The Museum’s more than two hundred galleries are filled with collections spanning two thousand years of artistic achievement.
The historic homes of Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove in Fairmount Park will be decorated for the holidays. There are opportunities to experience the houses on selected evenings with wine and colonial-inspired desserts and transportation provided via trolley from the Museum’s West Entrance.
The Museum Store offers gifts inspired by art, wit, and whim, ranging from touchscreen gloves, pocket-size puzzle book stocking stuffers, and notecards showing Santa in the masterpieces of the collection.
One unique item offered by the Museum this holiday season is the gift of membership.
