Current Special Exhibit
November 22, 2013 - January 19, 2014
Come celebrate the holidays at the Plymouth Historical Museum with the new exhibit “A Red Ryder Christmas Story.” This fun-filled exhibit is based on the beloved Christmas movie, A Christmas Story, as well as the original story by Jean Shepherd from which the movie is based. The Museum will be filled with vignettes of scenes from the movie, including the infamous leg lamp and Flick’s tongue getting stuck to the lamp pole. The movie and stories are nostalgic of the late depression era and early years of WWII, which the exhibit seeks to capture by incorporating items from the time period. Since Red Ryder BB guns were originally sold by Daisy Manufacturing Company of Plymouth, the story of Ralphie’s quest for this particular BB gun is significant to Plymouth’s history. “A Red Ryder Christmas Story” runs through January 19, 2014.
Also, Santa Claus will be present at the Museum for visiting children every Saturday before Christmas beginning November 30. The Museum reopens November 22 and will then be open 1-4 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for students 6-17. The Plymouth Historical Museum is located at 155 S. Main Street, just one block north of downtown Plymouth. Visit us at our website or call 734-455-8940
