The museum’s Manor House features 25 decorated Christmas trees and will offer classic holiday movies and family films in 21 rooms and spaces throughout the house. The house’s reception hall is decorated to look like a movie theatre, with ticket stubs, candy, popcorn and a red carpet in the Linenfold Hallway with walk-of-fame stars and film reels.
The music room will feature a “Nutcracker” display with costumes from the Cleveland Ballet. Decorations and displays are done by local decorators and artists, as well as the Akron Makerspace and local Lego group, Neolug.
