LMC is decorated and ready for Christmas visitors

By Chuck Gibson

Christmas has arrived at the Loveland Museum Center.  It is now decorated in full Christmas splendor.

“We had some new volunteers come in and help do the decorating,” said Jan Beller, museum director. “They put a new light on some of the decorating.”

Four cases of international crèche scenes on loan from The Grail are part of the familiar decorations visitors won’t want to miss. Big kids and little kids all love the trip up to the second floor to see Dick Shaver and his model train, whistle blowing and smoke puffing around the track. New this year is pottery made right here in Loveland

“It’s made by several different potters at the Whistle Stop Clay Works in Loveland,” Beller said. “It’s really local now. It’s on display now.”

Pottery Christmas ornaments and mugs will be available for visitors to purchase and add to their home holiday decorations. It is a stroll back through time peeking into a Victorian Christmas. The whole family can enjoy the ambiance of a wonderful old fashioned Christmas.

Christmas at Loveland Museum Center is open Thanksgiving weekend Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. The public is welcome to come find the Christmas spirit every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. throughout December. LMC will be open from 4-9 p.m. to celebrate Christmas in Loveland, Saturday, December 14, with the mini-train rides and live caroling performances by the Ohio Valley Voices and Loveland Presbyterian Church Choir.

Loveland Museum Center members and volunteers invite you to visit soon and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
