Come Home for Christmas

Cape May County’s centuries-old tradition of coming home for Christmas will be celebrated in grand style when The Museum of Cape May County opens its doors to welcome the holiday season. Housed in a home that has continuously sat on its property since 1704, The Museum serves as the ancestral home to every citizen of Cape May County.

Young and old alike are invited to this year’s holiday extravaganza that begins on Friday, Dec. 7 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Be sure to be on hand at 7 p.m. when Santa makes a special appearance to light the enormous Christmas tree on the front lawn followed by visits with Santa and holiday sweets. Throughout the evening visitors will be able to take an evening stroll through The Museum and see the magnificently decorated and lighted rooms and be taken back to the Christmases of long ago.

On Sat., Dec. 8, The Museum will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for holiday tours, music and treats. Santa will be on hand to welcome and listen to the wishes or our youngest visitors from noon until 1:15 p.m.

Come enjoy The Museum this holiday season. Be awed by the rooms, each expertly decorated by one of Cape May County’s finest florists. Be surrounded by the holiday music of Middle Township High School’s Middletones along with the songs of local singers John and Jan Haigis. Delight in the glory of Christmases past, bask in the warmth of this county’s long history, meet old friends and new, and enjoy the sounds and sights of Christmas – Cape May County-style!
