Candlelight 2018

Our annual Candlelight event is a festive evening that offers a tour of Bush-Holley House done up in holiday style. The family-friendly tours last roughly 45 minutes and interpret Christmas traditions as they were celebrated by the Bush and Holley families in the Colonial and art colony eras.

Music, hot chocolate, holiday treats, a visit from Santa Claus (5:00–7:00 pm) and craft projects for kids will also be offered in the Vanderbilt Education Center.

Tours are first-come, first-served and leave every 15 minutes until 6:30 pm. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the exhibitions in the new museum building.
