A Special Night at the Museum

With tidings of comfort and joy, your Versailles Area Museum invites you to celebrate the joy of the season with a special evening by Christmas lights to enjoy our special displays. On Friday evening December 9th from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. the lights will twinkle, and candles flicker and the scent of the season will fill our displays.

Guest presenters will be in the various rooms to share the stories of the season. Janet & Leo Rinderle will be hosting the “Sweet Treats” display and share the thrill of collecting M&M collectables and traveling to their unique conventions. Tom Mendenhall, one of our valued volunteers will host our Military Room sharing some of the history of those remembered in our exhibit. Another of our faithful volunteers, Cynthia Vogel will answer questions about northeastern Darke County’s own Annie Oakley and how she might have kept Christmas. Art Gaier will tell you all about the earliest bicycles that might have appeared under a real Christmas tree.

Sweet treats like Grandma made for the holidays will be offered and fantastic books are being offered for sale in our Gift Shop. You also may become a member or give a gift membership for the holidays. We also will have our 2017 Historic Dinner tickets available for you to reserve seats for yourself or to give as a gift to a special History lover on your list.

Please plan to spend a little time with us as we welcome the season at the Museum!

Remember we close for the season December 18th. We reopen in February for our 2017 season!
