'Songs Of The Season' At Osborne Homestead Museum
âSongs Of The Seasonâ At Osborne Homestead Museum
DERBY â For the holiday season, Osborne Homestead Museum will feature the sights and sounds of holiday music. Each room in the museum will be decorated to reflect a different holiday song.
As visitors tour through the beautiful historic home, they will visit a âWinter Wonderlandâ and âToyland,â enjoy the sounds of âJingle Bellsâ and experience many other holiday classics.
As they have done for the past twenty years, volunteers create the lavish holiday decorations. Talented women volunteer from Ansonia Garden Club, Olde Ripton Garden Club of Shelton, Oxford Garden Club, Naugatuck Garden Club, Friends of Oxford, Derby Garden Society and The Womenâs Guild of Sheltonâs Trinity Lutheran Church.
Through December 19, the museum will be open Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Museum guides will offer a special holiday tour.
On the Friday evenings of December 3, 10 and 17, the museum will present Twilight Tours from 4 pm to 6:30 pm to show the special glow of the decorations in the evening hours.
Group tours for adults, schools and youth programs are available throughout the week; call 734-2513 for an appointment.
Osborne Homestead Museum exhibits the fine art and antiques of Frances Osborne Kellogg. Ms Kellogg, who was known for her great appreciation of music, would have likely enjoyed the musical theme of the decorating.
There is no admission cost; donations are gratefully accepted.
The museum is at 500 Hawthorne Avenue in Derby, off Route 34 (signs are posted).
