The Museum of Science and Industry’s 73rd annual Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light features more than 50 trees and displays,each decorated by local volunteers and reflecting their ethnic heritage. The main tree in the museum rotunda has a Disney theme in honor of the temporary exhibit Treasures of Disney. If you haven't seen them yet, check out these exhibits now through January 4th.
Christmas Around the World
Take the escalator up to the main museum level and enter a world of Christmas trees and other exhibits that transports you to lands far away. See how trees are decorated in the land of your ancestors. Learn about cultures and other holiday traditions as you stroll through the trees.
There are also ethnic singers and dancers performing live on stage throughout the day. Rest awhile while watching one of their shows.
How do You decorate Your Christmas Tree?
This is a family tradition that can be passed down from generation to generation. When we were children, we visited the MSI to see the Christmas tree exhibit. Years later, our growing family returned to see the trees. Their children too will someday visit the museum to travel around the world without leaving home.
