Darlene Palumbo shows a Christmas tree in 2017.On Sunday, December 4th, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm our museum will be open and participating in the township holiday celebration. The museum is beautifully decorated with the theme of “A Victorian Christmas.” The tree is decorated with presents underneath while excited children and mothers peer at the antique toys. The mannequins are dressed in opulent and authentic clothing from the late 1800s. Join us for caroling around our 1885 Mason & Hamlin reed pump organ. There will be tasty treats and hot mulled cider available. The museum is located at 1840 East Front street, Scotch Plains, New Jersey adjacent to the Alan Augustine Town Green.

*Sorry, our models** won’t be walking the runway, we don’t even have a runway, they will just be standing there.

**Sorry again, we don’t have any models. They’re just dummies dressed up but it doesn’t really matter. Unlike modern fashions one sees little of the wearer and much more of the clothing.
