Museum at Twilight Explores the History of Holiday Beverages

The Greeley History Museum will offer visitors a taste of the past at “Museum at Twilight: Holiday Cheer” from 4 to 6 p.m. December 9.

The event will be stirring up insights into the history of well-known festive beverages. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, learn about eggnog (is it really is a form of punch?), and discover at long last what wassailing is. This is a family-friendly event, and kids are warmly invited to sample hot chocolate before joining museum staff for a holiday craft near the tasting room.

This will be a no-alcohol event.

Regular Greeley History Museum admission applies; Friends of the Greeley Museums receive free admission.

Current Exhibitions:

  • Utopia: Adaptation on the Plains
  • Seven Symphonic Portraits: A Weld County Reflection
  • Dolores Huerta: Revolution in the Fields | Revolución en los Campos (through December 2)
  • Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity: 35 Years and Building
  • Viewfinder: Through the Lens of Time

In addition to exhibits, the lower level of the museum contains the Hazel E. Johnson Research Center, which has an impressive collection of documentary and photographic resources available for researchers, students and genealogists. The building, originally built in 1929 for the Greeley Tribune, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and became home to the Greeley History Museum in 2005.
