The Mark Twain House & Museum, A Clemens Christmas Preview Evening

November 17, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - November 27, 2023 @ 9:00 pm EST

Be one of the first people to see the Mark Twain House newly-decorated for Christmas with our exclusive sneak preview evening!

For the first part of your evening, explore the entire first floor of the historic home at your leisure, with our trained historic interpreters available in each room to answer questions and tell you all about how this family prepared for and celebrated Christmas. Then you’ll return to our museum center to craft some of the same Gilded Age Christmas ornaments and decorations the Clemenses made to adorn their own home and tree.

Our museum store will be open all evening so you can get a jump on your holiday shopping–with a special 20% discount only available to attendees. Festive beverages and snacks will be available to purchase at our museum café. Donate a winter coat to our coat drive and receive a free hot chocolate or soft drink!

Tickets for the evening are $50. Museum member tickets are $40, so consider adding a membership to your cart as you check out! REGISTER HERE.

Museum store discount exclusive of books and sale items; cannot be combined with any other discount. Coat drive donations benefit MAAC Charities of Manchester, CT.
