Holiday Open House and Santa’s Workshop
December 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| FREE
The Rhode Island Historical Society invites the community to visit the Museum of Work & Culture for a free annual Holiday Open House, offered as part of Woonsocket’s Main Street Holiday Stroll. In attendance will be the North Pole Postman, whose latest book, The North Pole Postman Visits Rhode Island – in which Santa’s postman “Post” Mark visits sites across the Ocean State to collect letters from children – features the Museum of Work & Culture. “Post” Mark will be at the MoWC from 1 to 3pm to sign books and help children write letters that he will then bring to the North Pole. Visitors are also invited to decorate cookies from Wright’s Dairy Farm & Bakery and help Santa’s elves build and test toys in their workshop. Children who help the elves will be entered in a raffle to win a toy train set. Visitors may also tour the MoWC, which will be decked in its holiday finest, while enjoying cookies, hot cocoa, and performances by Woonsocket’s strolling entertainers. The MoWC gift shop will also offer a 20% discount throughout the day.
