Victorian Christmas
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:38:09 AM »
I'm hoping to make my first visit to the museum for Victorian Christmas.  Are there any cost effective hotels in the area?   Would be 2 couples.  Anything going on at the museum Friday afternoon or Sunday morning?   Would like to make a weekend of it.

There are some lodging suggestions on this thread:,3058.0.html
(The Wiscasset Woods Lodge will be closed during Victorian Christmas.)

I suspect that there will be preparations for VC underway on Friday. Nothing formal, but you may want to stop by before it gets dark. That will also give you some time to explore the museum campus without all the crowds. Likewise I strongly suspect that nothing will be going on Sunday morning, as the volunteers will need to recuperate from Saturday's barriage.

Remember that VC is two Saturdays this year - December 16 & 23.

Also, note that tickets for VC will likely be by reservation this year. Details will be available shortly. The goal is to ease this parking situation and disperse the crowds more evenly across the day. Stay posted!
