Description

During A Victorian Holiday at Oakland, visitors can take the Holiday Tour of Eternal Homes, which gives a "behind-the-stones" look at some of Oakland’s magnificent mausoleums. A costumed tour guide shares the histories of the families who lie in rest in each of the structures, which are decorated in holiday splendor.

In addition to the mausoleum tour, A Victorian Holiday at Oakland includes a wide range of activities for all ages. Visitors can take photos with Santa Claus and his sidekick Rudolph while enjoying a reading of A Visit from St. Nicholas. Kids can try their hand at Victorian crafts and ornament-making, and guitarist Matthias Young performs holiday standards throughout the afternoon. Members of HOF’s gardens team will be on hand to demonstrate how to design and decorate with holiday greenery.
