Discover themed Christmas trees throughout the museum as you follow our Trail of Trees and pick up an illustrated guide to hunt for art objects representing the Twelve Days of Christmas. Don’t miss the centerpiece of the Museums—our 16-foot Folk Art tree decorated with over 2,000 hand-crafted ornaments.
