Deck the Halls

November 17 - December 30, 2018

This annual exhibition showcases the historic Sawyer home decorated in its holiday splendor reminiscent of the times.

The life-size Christmas Village exhibit windows feature a wonderful holiday display, and at the center of it all is the incredible "Biggest Little Show" wooden toy circus made in the 1940s by Marshall and Ruth Magnusen for their sons, Karl and Jim.

A visit is not complete without a stroll through the halls to marvel at the gorgeous interiors designed by Tiffany Studios of New York, including the newly-lit one-of-a-kind iridescent stained glass windows on the landing of the grand staircase.

Join us for this annual holiday experience at the Oshkosh Public Museum.
