Museums by Candlelight

December 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Once a year, Frederick County’s numerous historic sites and museums provide visitors with a living reminder of this area’s remarkable 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 year, the Seton Shrine will be hosting a special FREE daytime version of Candlelight Tours: Christmas Saints. While you’re here, visit professional artist, Lauren Muney of Silhouette by Hand, who will be on site and available to cut your silhouette for the bi-weekly Hands-On History program. Purchase tickets to get your silhouette cut here. Availability is limited, so please register ahead of time.

This is a FREE self-guided event (aside from the silhouette add-on).  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.
