Since 1913, the museum has played host to historical exhibits that feature both ancient and modern artifacts, a fine art collection of more than 30,000 pieces, and educational programs that run the gamut from specialized school tours to art and craft sessions for children.

A Christmas Story: The Musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.

The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as "Ralphie to the Rescue!" "A Major Award," "Sticky Situation," "Up on Santa's Lap," "Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana" and the inevitable "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!" A Christmas Story: The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.
