Be sure to visit the Museum of the Middle Appalachians before the end of the year to experience the Winter Wonderland of Trees! With participation from the community, the Christmas tree display has been growing every year. For many families, visiting the Christmas exhibit has become a holiday tradition.
The annual Winter Wonderland and Christmas Tree Exhibit at the Museum of the Middle Appalachians in Saltville is open to the public and will continue through Jan. 4, 2017. Twenty-four trees, decorated by local businesses, civic organizations, churches and school groups, can be seen Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
The exhibit also features wreaths made by local people and includes traditional Christmas displays. One tree is reserved for children to decorate with their ornaments. Children are invited to bring an ornament of their choosing any time the museum is open and place it on the tree dedicated to children.
Admission to the Winter Wonderland is by donation or is included with paid admission to the museum. As with all events and programs at the museum, members are admitted free. Groups are welcome with advance notice. For more information, call the museum at 276-496-3633.
