The holidays are here! If you are looking for some fun, family-friendly activities, look no further than the Rochester Hills Museum!  On Saturday, December 1 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be visiting the farm to meet with good boys and girls and accept their Christmas wish lists.

The Museum will also be holding our annual Old Fashioned Christmas on Saturday, December 15 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Music, theatre, crafts, and goodies are just a few of the things that people can enjoy.  Wagon rides will provide transportation between our historical buildings where all of these fun activities will be taking place.
