Knights of Columbus Museum

Around the Diocese

Christmas in Europe is the theme of the Knights of Columbus Museum's 15th annual Christmas exhibition, showcasing the art and customs of the continent.

The museum will exhibit more than 80 Nativity scenes or crèches, icons, and religious artworks representing 30 countries across Europe, including its signature 120-square-foot Neapolitan (Italian) crèche until Sun, Feb 2.

In addition, the museum will host its annual Christmas Tree Festival, also displayed until Sun, Feb 2. Each year, Connecticut Catholic schoolchildren make ornaments and decorations in the theme of the museum's Christmas show, then visit the museum to trim its two dozen trees. The handmade adornments showcase the creativity and imagination of the young learners and are a colorful complement to the Christmas exhibition.

The museum is open daily (except on Christmas Eve and Christmas) from 10:00am-5:00pm with free admission and onsite parking.
