Turtle Doves, French Hens and Golden Rings: Holiday Greetings

On display from November 17th – December 23rd, 2022

Have you ever wondered about the origins of Christmas cards? Who invented them? When did they first become popular? Why are they on the decline today?

Opening November 17th, 2022, come explore our new holiday exhibit Turtle Doves, French Hens and Golden Rings: Holiday Greetings. This exhibit highlights Christmas postcards and greetings from the Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead collection. The postcards you’ll find on display range from as early as 1906 to present day.

This exhibit is included with admission to the museum. We will also be open with holiday decorations for A Hunter Christmas while this exhibit is open. The Homestead will be open for the holiday season Wednesday-Sunday from 11am-4pm. Last admission is 3:00pm.

Don’t wait to visit! This exhibit will only be available until December 23rd, 2022.
