Join us for Christmas in Who-Seum-Ville during our annual holiday open house on Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 10 am - 4 pm!

Delve into the magical world of Dr. Seuss’ classic book How the Grinch Stole Christmas during the annual holiday open house. See characters from the book brought to life by MOA’s Junior Docents, watch the Albemarle Express O scale train as it travels around the Albemarle region making stops at county landmarks in each of the 13 counties our museum serves. Search for historical characters drawn in Seussical style. Take photos with Cindy Lou-Who and other characters at our “Who-ville Village”, make Grinch crafts, and enjoy Grinch-inspired refreshments. Santa will stop by to make sure he has your wish list. You can visit Santa between 1:30 - 2:30 p.m.

Little tots can enjoy a ride on the kid-sized train on the green, compliments of Biggs Cadillac Buick GMC. Celebrate Grinch-mas by growing your heart three sizes when you add your good deeds to our special good-deed chain that will be displayed in the museum lobby throughout the holiday season. To top off your visit, enjoy the 2018 animated feature film The Grinch. Movie times: 10:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m.

Visit the Discovery Room: Sailing the High Seas! featuring interactive exhibits with a maritime theme, play pirate games, and holiday games and activities. With the museum ‘Grinchified’ for the holidays, bring your camera for photo ops, too! And don't forget to visit the Museum Gift Shop for that special gift!

Free and open to the public. Call 252-331-4032 for more information.
