All That Glows: Then & Now

The Manitoba Electrical Museum & Education Centre, located at 680 Harrow Street, just ten minutes from the Fort Gary Hotel, is proud to present "All That Glows: Then & Now 2016," an annual exhibit of holiday lights. The exhibit educates visitors on the ways Christmas lighting and decorations have been revolutionized since the practice first began in the 1880s. You'll learn, for example, how Christmas tress were lit in homes that weren't yet wired for electricity. The exhibition has a "local" feel, focusing on the history of electronic innovations in the Manitoba province, which makes it particularly appealing to international travelers. The exhibition is open Monday - Wednesday and on Saturday December 3rd, December 10th, and December 17th. Parking and admission are free for all so you have no excuses not to go!
