“We Need A Little Christmas”

Each year, hundreds of visitors come to the museum from November to January to view nearly fifty trees, festive pictures, and holiday displays decorated by local businesses and organizations. The Wonderland of Trees is not only great publicity, but a great way to give back to the community, support historical and education programming at the Holland Land Office Museum, and spread Holiday cheer to all!

Friday, November 20th- Thursday, December 31st
Come and see all the wonderful decorated trees from organizations and businesses from around the community. There is also a basket raffle that will be available to purchase tickets for from November 20th until December 18th when the winners will be chosen.
On the first three Fridays of December (4th, 11th, & 18th) the Genesee Symphony Orchestra will be providing music which will be available to a small audience of 12 people by pre-registration. The concerts will also be broadcast live for those who are not able to attend.
Due to the current situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Opening Gala will not be held. The Wonderland of Trees will be open during our normal business hours with a limit of 25 visitors at any one time. All visitors are required to wear face coverings, follow social distancing protocols including the museum’s one way path system.
