Museum at Twilight Explores the History of Holiday Beverages

The Greeley History Museum will offer visitors a taste of the past at “Museum at Twilight: Holiday Cheer” from 4 to 6 p.m. December 9.

The event will be stirring up insights into the history of well-known festive beverages. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, learn about eggnog (is it really is a form of punch?), and discover at long last what wassailing is.

It’s a family-friendly event, and kids are warmly invited to sample hot chocolate before joining museum staff for a holiday craft near the tasting room.

This will be a no-alcohol event.

Regular Greeley History Museum admission applies; Friends of the Greeley Museums receive free admission.
