Celebrate the holidays 20th century style at the Oakville Museum!

To celebrate the holiday season, the Oakville Museum is hosting a number of unique and family-friendly workshops and events – 20th century style! Make a vintage folded fabric star ornament or take part in the Twelve Days of Christmas scavenger hunt.

“The holiday season is the perfect time to visit Erchless Estate, the former home of Oakville’s founding family, the Chisholms,” said Bill Nesbitt, Museum Supervisor. “Take a tour of the museum and embrace the period decor to bring back the magic of Christmas. It’s truly a nostalgic experience.”
