Make this Christmas special with your family holiday photos in front of the Museum’s decorative Belle Reve fireplace

 
Take your holiday family photos in front of the St. Clair Museum’s exquisite 250-year-old, hand-carved Belle Reve Room fireplace.  It’s decorated with wreaths and garland patterned after decorations from the 1915-era.
 
The Museum will be open for your family holiday photo opportunities on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving (November 29, 30, Dec. 1) from 1 to 5 p.m.  Bring your own camera, smartphone or tablet for Do-It-Yourself photos.  The only cost is a $6 donation to help us continue the Museum renovation project.  You can even dress everyone up in clothing from the 1915 era (think Downton Abbey).
 
A professional photographer from Twin Shutterbug Studios will be available by appointment on Friday, Nov. 29 from 11:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.  For $50 you will receive a ten minute photo session plus one digital file from that session.
