Every year the holiday decorations are different and amazing. Other displays year round showing history of Youngstown. They often have activities for children young and old in the basement area. Nice gift shop too with authentic antique Christmas decorations for sale during the holidays.

The Museum, which was once a home, was beautifully decorated for Christmas to showcase antique and vintage decorations used during the period when the building was a family home (1905-1960). Each display was amazing and the history of the home was very interesting. I plan...More

I have only gone at the holidays. They always decorate it beautifully and it's not that large but large enough to feel like you got to see something. The house is really special. I think it's worth the trip. The name just throws people off....More
