Grundy Museum is presenting its third annual Victorian Holiday House.
For the first time, the entire museum, located at 610 Radcliffe St. in Bristol, will be decorated with exquisite Victorian displays. The museum is once again partnering with designer Jimmy Bason Gilpatrick, proprietor of Bristol’s Bird of Paradise Flowers. Featured is a collection of nutcrackers owned by Bristol Riverside Theatre’s senior director of relationships David Abers; a Byers’ Choice Collection; vintage toys from Canal’s End Antiques; Lenox China owned by the Quattrocci family, of Bristol Borough; and more.
Celebrate the spirit of an authentic, late 19th century Christmas in the restored home of the Grundy family.
An opening night special event is set for Friday, Dec. 2, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Delight in the festive sounds of holiday music resonating from the restored Steinway. Savor light refreshments on the newly-constructed South Lawn. Attendees receive a special take-home gift.
Space is limited. Registration is required. Cost is $50 per adult admission. Visit grundymuseum.ticketleap.com for tickets. Use code GRUNDY5 at checkout for a discount on admission price.
