Mantels for the Season

November 17 - December 30, 2023

Join us for our 6th annual Mantels for the Season!

This year’s theme will focus on Bristol’s new Cultural District. Mantels and trees in the museum’s eight galleries will be decorated by businesses and organizations associated with the district, which includes historic Federal Hill and select downtown sections of the city. 


Cultural Districts are walkable areas of a city or town that feature numerous cultural facilities, activities and/or assets. Bristol received its Cultural District designation in August 2022 from the Connecticut Office of the Arts and is one of only five cities/towns in the state to have received this designation. 


Bring your family and friends to the museum to see this fun seasonal display! It’s also a great time for visitors to check out the museum shop for one-of-a-kind gifts to help round out your holiday shopping. 

Mantels for the Season is included in the price of admission.
