One of the great things about our area is the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum.  It is the largest history museum in the state and it is right here in our backyard.  If it has been awhile since you visited or if you have never been at all then it is time to mark your calendars for December 6th and 7th.  It's the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum Open House.

The museum will be bustling with Christmas activity as role players in Pioneer town invite you step in and step back to Christmas in the 1890’s. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be ready to take requests from children who visit them in their sleigh in the snowy woods of Hazlewood Lecture Hall. In the basement, children can make holiday crafts in the craft corner. In the Petroleum Theater, storytellers will weave Christmas stories in a cozy living room setting with a crackling fire while songs by children’s choirs and entertainers fill the rest of the museum with music from the Derrick Room. On Saturday only, adults and kids can decorate their own holiday cookie at the museum.


The event is Friday, December 6th from 6-9pm and Saturday, December 7th 2-6pm.

Admission is one can of food which will be donated to the High Plains Food Bank.
