It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas at your Versailles Area Museum

We invite you to stop by the Museum to see us all decked out in holiday wear as we are open each Sunday from 1:00 to 4:00 to let you browse through our Christmas displays to glimmer Christmas Past.

From the peace of our Church room to treats in Martin’s Toyland, and you won’t want to miss a peak into Grandma’s Kitchen 1900 style for delicious samples of old time treats and recipes, new each week!

Clarence Pittsenbarger, referred to by his friends as “Pittsy” was a cabinet maker and a great tinkerer. Pittsy delighted the children of Versailles by building a unique motorized Santa & sleigh, now at the museum. Also a host of his homemade toys he created are perched under our Enterpuner Room’s tree for you to enjoy remembering.

Learn about the famous Russell’s and their circus adventures as well as facts about our Great Fire of 1901 and how our Community survived.

Thanks to all the kids at Brilliant Beginnings for helping make some special decorations for our School room. It looks great!

Also a visit to our gift shop for wonderful surprises for on or under your tree is a must!

For group tours please call the museum office at 526-4222 and someone will get back to you.

Come get in the spirit of Christmas Past at your Versailles Museum. Admission is always free, but your generous donations are most appreciated!
