PMG PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER KEIZUR - There is plenty to see at the Gresham History Museum for those craving Christmas early. For anyone craving some Christmas cheer, the Gresham History Museum is the place to be this season.

PMG PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER KEIZUR - The Gresham History Museum has been decorated for the holidays. The interior of the museum has been decorated with festive, historic pieces sure to delight the whole family. There is a 400-piece Santa Village, a collection of 200 antique snowmen of all shapes and sizes, 100 nutcrackers, multiple trees and so much more. The display cases also show off the entrants of a Gingerbread House Competition, meaning visitors can stroll through Candy Cane Lane and vote on their favorite entries.

Everything begins from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 27, at the museum, 410 N. Main Ave. Entry is $5 for anyone older than 5, with the funds going in support of the Gresham Historical Society and the ongoing repairs to the museum after a fire in the summer.

Following the grand reopening for the holidays, community members can enjoy the museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday. On Saturdays Santa Clause will be on site to take photos with kids. On Saturday, Dec. 4, the Gresham History Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the Spirit of Gresham festivities taking place throughout downtown.
