Touching on Traditions

People from around the world have made their homes in the Elgin area. They brought beliefs and traditions from their countries of origin giving the Elgin community a rich diversity, which is now part of our cultural heritage.

The Elgin Public Museum's authentic and culturally-inclusive winter holiday exhibit featured displays and objects of traditional holiday significance from over 40 countries.

The Elgin Public Museum Education staff offered group programs for schools, Scouts, clubs and adult groups.

The exhibition is held at the Elgin Public Museum this year. The Museum will be open to the public on the weekends of December 8th and 9th and December 15th and 16th and December 22nd - 23rd. The Museum will be closed December 25th.
