Victorian Christmas & Holiday Craft Boutique

Please join us for a Victorian Christmas! The house will be decked out for a 19th century Christmas and visitors will be given a special Christmas tour. A Victorian Santa will be on site for pictures (please check the events page for times). From there, please visit our museum theater for a special viewing of Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". We'll also have carollers, craft vendors, and demonstrators on site! Admission is $5 per person and includes all activities. 

Christmas Field Trip Opportunity



During the month of December, enjoy a tour of the house and grounds while it is decorated for a Victorian Christmas. In addition, students can take part in our "What! No Batteries?" program as well as well as make a special holiday craft.

The field trip is $5 per student. Contact Alex Collins at 615-459-2341 or education@samdavishome.org for more information or to make a reservation.
