An air of excitement will surround the flurry of lively pop-up activities and everyday fun. Try to find all the fun facts about winter on display. Of course, expect the unexpected with magical visits from favorite seasonal characters and local performers. Don’t forget to wear your wintery favorites and take advantage of the photo opportunities scattered throughout the museum.

Please note that CMOM will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and every Monday. Winter Wonderland is included in the price of admission/and free to members. If you’d like to join CMOM, click here.
