5 Maine house museums to visit during the holidays

Written by: Mary Ruoff

Historic house museums around the state are decked with Christmas decor for visitors to enjoy during tours and special events. You can sit down for high tea and step back in time to a 19th-century Maine Christmas. Don’t forget your shopping list for the museum gift shop. One local history museum even has a holiday pop-up store. But keep this in mind: An outing to one of these community treasures is a gift itself, one that will guide you out of the holiday season’s fast lane and into its spirit.
