Museums by Candlelight

  • December 14 at 7 PM

Once a year, Frederick County’s numerous historic sites and museums provide visitors with a living reminder of the area's splendid past. During Museums by Candlelight, special programming and hands-on fun will delight visitors of all ages, and special children's activities are featured at most locations.

This is a FREE self-guided event. Visit many locations, or just a few, in any order. Enjoy period demonstrations, living history vignettes, hands-on crafts, refreshments, tours, music, holiday decorations and historic settings by candlelight as night falls.
