Let's Go see the exhibit Under the Tree: A Century of Holiday Trees and Toys at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown.
ABOUT the MUSEUM:
The Mercer Museum is a history museum of everyday life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries. The collection of some 40,000 objects documents the lives and tasks of early Americans through the tools that met their needs and wants prior to the Industrial Revolution.
Most of the 55 exhibit rooms and alcoves display the tools or products of an early American craft, trade or occupation. Other rooms show categories of objects such as lighting devices or architectural hardware.

ABOUT the EXHIBIT:
The Mercer Museum's annual holiday exhibit captures the excitement of Christmas from a child's point of view. The show features trees decorated to the tastes of earlier eras, together with some of the toys and games that once delighted children on Christmas mornings. The display draws from the Mercer Museum's holdings and local private collections, and includes popular playthings from the Victorian Era through the 1980s. Period ornaments and appropriate reproductions adorn the trees, and show the evolution of Christmas traditions.
COST: $14 adults, children 5 and under Free
If we are able to get a minimum of 10 people together, it would only cost $11 for adults.
