Merry Trees Exhibit Open House

We invite everyone young and old to come to the FREE Merry Trees Open House on Friday, December 2nd. From 5pm – 7:30pm, visitors will have an opportunity to see each class’s tree, participate in a family holiday I Spy game, visit with Santa in the museum’s galleries, and pick up a book from the Fredericksburg Bookmobile.


The FAM’s seventh annual Merry Trees exhibit will fill the gallery spaces with fourteen miniature trees decorated by second-grade students at Hugh Mercer and Lafayette Elementary Schools. Each tree is inspired by a children’s book the students have read in the classroom.
