SALT LAKE CITY — The Church History Museum will be holding its annual "Christmas Créche" exhibit, which displays a variety of Nativity sets from around the world, starting Nov. 19.
Along with the Nativities, the exhibit will feature paintings from several LDS artists, including Elspeth Young, Walter Rane and Brian Kershisnik.
During the month of December the museum will also hold two separate holiday celebrations — a "Pioneer Christmas" and a "New Years Celebration."
The "Pioneer Christmas" will give children the chance to experience a Mormon pioneer Christmas that includes a visit from Santa. The program will be presented twice, at 3 p.m. and at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4. With limited seating, free tickets will be required and are available at www.lds.org/events.
The "New Years Celebration" will feature hands-on children's activities and will be held Dec. 29, 30 and 31. Celebration hours are 4 to 9 p.m. on the 29th and 30th, and 5 to 9 p.m. on the 31st.
The Church History Museum is located at 45 North West Temple Street in Salt Lake City. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free, and additional information can be found at www.churchhistorymuseum.org.
