Winter Wonders


November 20 – December 31, 2016

The onset of winter inspires many emotions – the beauty of snow and ice, the joy of the holidays and the bleakness of long dark days, all contribute to common experiences during this season. During this time when Jack Frost makes his presence known we are treated to many wonder inspiring sights. And like any visitor who stays too long, as the frigid season drags on we are often desperately and collectively contemplating “I wonder how we will get through this?”

Winter Wonderland Model Train Display


In this year’s Museum Holiday Exhibition entitled Winter Wonders, visual depictions of frozen scenery, holiday scenes and winter activities will be displayed along with the ever popular Winter Wonderland Model Train Display for children of all ages! An important part of the museum tradition will also be included – a Holiday Tree decorated by the Friends of Monmouth Museum.
