Christmas Playtime at the Mansion

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until January 3, 2021

The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum kicks off the Holiday Season with a new exhibit titled, Christmas Playtime at the Mansion, which will open to the public on Wed., Nov. 11, 2020 and run through Sun., Jan. 3, 2021.

From 1868 to 1938, children played on the third floor of the Mansion, which was filled with toys and dolls and even featured a theater where they may have performed. This year, after undergoing expert restoration, the Museum’s doll collection along with several vintage toys will be exhibited as part of Christmas Playtime at the Mansion, an exhibition that will recreate those playful times during the Victorian era.

The first floor of the Mansion will feature Christmas trees decorated with period-appropriate ornaments, a dining table adorned with dazzling antique silver and china, several playful dolls and toy vignettes, and sumptuous Victorian gowns curated by Stacey Danielson, with generous loans from the Wilton Historical Society.

The exhibit will also feature magnificent contemporary displays and trees decorated by renowned interior designer Victoria Vandamm of Vandamm Interiors, while silk garlands embellished with ribbons and trimmings will drape the grand Victorian staircase beautifully decorated by Danna DiElsi, owner of The Silk Touch in Norwalk, CT.

Tour times:
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday
12 & 2 p.m.
