A celebration of the wonders of the holiday season. With a side of eggs.

There’s no lovelier—or tastier—way to kick off the holidays than by joining us for an exclusive breakfast among the trees, as MSI welcomes back the family favorite Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light. Museum President and CEO David Mosena invites you to enjoy all the traditions of the season, including strolling carolers, holiday-themed crafts and a visit with jolly old St. Nick. This special member event gives you unique access to our enchanting indoor wonderland of dazzling trees, traditional ornaments and displays of light and enlightenment!

You and your family will enjoy early access to favorite exhibits, including: YOU! The Experience • Science Storms • Genetics: Life Decoded • Earth Revealed • The Art of the Bicycle • Extreme Ice • and more!


This event is open to current Family Level members up to your admit number. Your membership must be active through November 30, 2019 to attend (renew now). Space is limited.

Member adults $30 | Member children $15
