Since 2011, thousands of Christmas holiday visitors to Cape May’s Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington Street, both young and old, have delighted in “An Old Fashioned Christmas Exhibit: Holiday Traditions through the Years,” which has become a beloved tradition of Cape May’s festive holiday season. Experience an exhibit of holiday traditions complete with a giant Christmas tree, a Dept. 56 Dickens Village, model trains, nostalgic photos from Christmas past, toys and much more. The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) received a donation in 2009 of an extensive Dept. 56 Dickens Village Collection from Ernie & Betsy Heegard. The collection has become the integral piece in this exhibit, which is open daily through Jan. 1, 2018 (except Thanksgiving and Christmas). Admission is free.
