On Saturday, December 5 from 10am to 4 pm, the Millyard Museum in Manchester will host Holiday Open House 2020. “Although our annual Holiday Open House will look different this year, we are excited to be able to offer a fun, festive day,” said John Clayton, executive director, Millyard Museum and Manchester Historic Association.
Highlights of the day include free admission, discounts in the museum shop and safe, individualized crafts and activities for kids.
According to Jeff Barraclough, director of operations, the event also represents the last chance to see the exhibit “Manchester’s Urban Ponds.” “This is an incredible exhibit that highlights the surprisingly unique history of many ponds in Manchester,” he said.
He added that Holiday Open House 2020 is representative of what visitors can see at many museums along the NH Heritage Museum Trail. “This holiday season, museums across New Hampshire are working hard to provide fun, safe activities for people of all ages to enjoy,” said Barraclough, who is also president of The Trail. “This event is just a small example of the many events happening on The Trail that celebrate the season.”
