Frontier Culture Museum Lantern Tours, Staunton, VA
If you’ve never been to the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, VA, then you’re missing out. This outdoor exhibit brings history to life with its re-creations of the lives of 17th and 18th century Germany, Ireland, West Africa, England, and America: “The Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here for themselves and their descendants” (Frontier Culture Museum).
A normal tour of the museum is already fascinating, and every year, they take it one step further with thematic Lantern Tours that will make you feel as though you’ve traveled back in time. Beginning on December 12, 2014, these lantern tours will include a Mummer’s play, a horse-drawn wagon ride, live music, and refreshments in the Dairy Barn Lecture Hall.
The Frontier Culture Museum’s Lantern Tours are a unique holiday treat, so this year, do something different, and spend a bit of the season in the past.
