Christmas in Nanaimo: Old-fashioned Christmas takes a peek into history

The public is invited to experience an old-fashioned family Christmas at the Nanaimo Museum Dec. 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Featuring Christmas carols, crafts, storytelling and treats,  children – and the young at heart – can enjoy playing with toys that were popular 100 years ago and  make their own whirligig and paper doll to take home.

Christmas storytelling by Anne Royle takes place at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Visitors are also encouraged to join in singing classic Christmas carols from 1-3 p.m., led by vocalist Arvon Brunt.

Museum admission is free in December, with a donation to the Nanaimo Food Bank.
