The History Museum on the Square invites everyone to do their holiday shopping at the museum this year. Starting on November 19th, the History Museum’s Voices of History Gallery will showcase limited edition canvas prints of vintage photographs of Springfield throughout the years. In addition to normal operating hours, the museum’s Voices of History Gallery will be open and free to the public for the Mayor’s Tree Lighting (11/19) from 5-7 pm and on the first Friday of December (12/2) from 5-7 pm. “The History Museum on the Square’s mission is to tell Springfield’s story by sharing our extensive collection with our community. Presenting these photos in our gallery, while making them available for Christmas gifts is a great way to highlight our mission,” explains Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director of the History Museum on the Square. This exhibition of photographs showcases what it was like to live in Springfield throughout its vibrant history. Since these prints will be available for purchase, they are the perfect gift for a history buff or Springfield enthusiast. Additionally, the History Museum on the Square is proud to announce a Holiday Season partnership with 5 Pound Apparel, hosting a selection of their Springfield-themed gifts throughout the holidays. The History Museum on the Square will also feature other gift options like gift memberships, Route 66 gear, and so much more. During the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting (11/19) 5-7 pm, the History Museum will host games, activities, and the museum’s famous Holiday Window Displays will be unveiled. This year’s window theme is “Coming Home for Christmas.” Through the years, the way Sprinfieldians have traveled home for the holidays may have changed but the reasons why have not. Love of family, community, and home keeps bringing people together during this special time of year. Come home to Springfield, Missouri, this holiday season.
