Museums by Candlelight

December 8, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


We welcome everyone to join us for Museums by Candlelight, where we’ll have guided tours of our grounds and candlelit historic homes and Basilica, decorated for the Christmas season. The grounds will be illuminated with 1,000 luminaries. Tour times are 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm & 3:30pm, and the tour lasts up to 45 minutes. Plus, fun make-and-take Christmas crafts will be available for kids of all ages from 10am-5pm.

If you come later, you could also participate in Door to Bethlehem, where visitors will join Mary and Joseph as they search for a place to rest on their journey to Bethlehem. The Door the Bethlehem is $6/person and free for children six years of age and younger. You can find out more about Door to Bethlehem here.

Museums by Candlelight is held in partnership with Visit Frederick and other museums and historic sites in Frederick County. Click here for more information and a map of all the participating sites.
