Race For The Kids

The Besser Museum's Season of Light Exhibit brings the museum to life! Community decorated trees line the hallways along with elaborate decorations created by local artist Delyn Medina and her mother, Marilyn Thom. This year's theme, "Home for the Holidays," will have the museum filled with all the wonderful things that make Christmas so special. Also included are the Trees of Nations, a forest of trees paying homage to Christmas traditions across the globe and through the ages, spanning from the Pagan ages to modern times.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit authentic articles and artifacts of art, history, and science to 

inspire curiosity, foster community pride, and cultivate personal legacy.
