Enjoy the Holidays with SOHO

Enjoy the warmth and beauty of the holiday season as the Whaley House celebrates the holidays with special self-guided tours of the house.

Many of our modern holiday traditions began during the mid 19th century. Come to the Thomas Whaley House Museum to learn about the history of American Christmas traditions. We invite you to take a respite from the demand of daily living and the hectic holiday season. Greeted by docents in period dress, you will experience a small picture of 19th century family life, and learn about holiday décor and traditions of the early Victorian era. This is a charming and unique way to experience the holiday season. For a sweet ending, guests can walk across the garden to the New Orleans Creole Café and enjoy assorted desserts and hot cocoa or cider. The house is open every day but Wednesdays from 10am to 4:30pm.

Holiday Benefits Exclusively for Members

Members Private Shopping Day
Get a head start on holiday shopping at the SOHO Museum Shop as members have the opportunity to enjoy a full day of shopping while the Museum is closed to the public. The SOHO Museum Shop will open its doors to SOHO members only on Wednesday, December 1, from 12 to 8pm

Special Gift Ideas that Support SOHO
SOHO relies on the generosity of its friends and supporters to meet the enormous cost of providing year-round programs and services. Perfect for family, friends, and business associates, these gifts will not only delight recipients, but also help support SOHO.

The SOHO Museum Shop
The Museum continues an annual tradition of providing exquisite holiday gifts and collectibles for everyone on your list. Custom gift-wrapping with Victorian to mid-century style available and children's gift-wrapping too!
