All New Displays – Every Year!

The Arms Family Museum in Youngstown Ohio is sparkling for the holiday season!   Memories of Christmas Past, the annual holiday spectacular, is in its tenth year in the 1905 Arts & Crafts mansion of Olive and Wilford Arms, and the home of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society.  The seven period rooms of the Arms Family home are filled to the brim with rare, one-of-a-kind, vintage decorations that include ornaments, lighting, trees, and toys.  This display features many pieces from the Historical Society’s collection as well as items on loan from private collectors.

“It’s so beautiful, it’s like something out of New York City!”

Memories of Christmas Past opens on Saturday, November 18, 2017 and runs through January 7, 2018.

Hours for the museum are Tuesday-Sunday, Noon to 4:00 p.m.; and Thursdays Noon to 7:00 p.m.  The Museum is closed on Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day.

Admission for the exhibit is $7 for adults, $6 for Senior Citizens; and $5 for Children ages 3-18 (under 3 free).  Proceeds from the event help fund the educational and exhibit programs sponsored by the Mahoning Valley Historical Society.
