For those who have always wanted to visit the museum or for those who already have a love for the local regional history museum, there will be a Holiday Open House from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free and there will be free food and music.
Matt Edwards, executive director of the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History, said the open house is the museum’s gift to the community.
“This is a tradition that has been ongoing for many years. It’s an opportunity for folks in the community to visit the museum for free,” said Edwards.
The Almost Irish band will be providing the entertainment for the event and local caterer Mary Planer is providing light refreshments.
“We really do expect a good turnout for this. This is one of those events where there will be several hundred people in attendance,” said Edwards.
He said B&L Custom Jewelers is sponsoring the music for the event.
“B&L has been a great supporter of the museum over the years. They have pretty much supplied all of the music for our events,” said Edwards.
Edwards said the open house is a great time for those who have never been in the museum to see what they have to offer. Right now, the Yadkin Valley Craft Guild has a show on the third floor and each piece of artwork is for sale. The African-American Architects and Builders exhibit, also on the third floor, is on display as well.
“This is a great opportunity for folks to come out and get in the holiday spirit and enjoy the decorations and the holiday activities around downtown. A good number of businesses will be open on Sunday afternoon, so it’s a chance to visit your local downtown retailer and get some Christmas shopping done,” said Edwards.
The museum is located at 301 N. Main St.
