Christmas Tours at the Octagon House Museum

This winter season the Octagon House Museum’s theme is a Dickens Christmas.  We will celebrate the life and works of Charles Dickens.  A beautifully decorated tree will be featured in the parlor, with wreathes in the windows, just as though the Moffat-Hughes family were with us for the holidays. Greens adorning our entries and passageways remind us of the Victorian era.  Come and discover how Dickens influenced Christmas traditions as well as his connection to the Hughes family, as we enjoy another holiday season at the Octagon House Museum.

The museum is open on the weekends in December prior to Christmas (December 7th – 22nd).  Tours are available on a walk-in basis on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Tours begin on the hour with the last tour beginning at 3 p.m.

Tour Fees: $10 Adults; $3 Students (6-18); and 5 and younger free with an accompanying adult. with a discount of $8 for Seniors (65+), Military, AAA Members and Groups (of 10 or more people).

The Museum is also open by appointment for special tours for groups of ten or more guests. Call to schedule your group tour at (715) 386-2654.
