Travel Around the World via Museum This Holiday Season

Take your family around the world this holiday season!

Nearly 50 trees and crèches are on view, each festooned with traditional ornaments and decorations by members of Chicago’s cultural communities, at the Museum of Science and Industry‘s Christmas Around the World exhibit. The 45 foot grand tree stands at center stage – the perfect holiday family picture photo-op. Watch out for falling “snow”! The Holidays of Light portion of the exhibit features holiday traditions that celebrate light: Chinese New Year, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Hanukkah, and Visakha Puja Day. Check the museum’s website for daily special programs that extend into the new year, including performances by the local choral groups and cultural organizations.
