EntertainmentHoused in the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution — the site of Francis Cabot Lowell's first manufacturing Mill — the Museum is the perfect backdrop to showcase Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and "Tea with Mrs. Dickens." In the Museum's Main Gallery, which once functioned as the last boiler house for the Boston Manufacturing Company, costumed actors will be reading scenes from the classic holiday tale. Additionally Catherine Dickens (as portrayed by actress Marci Diamond) shares stories about her life, Victorian Christmas and culinary traditions, and what it's like to be married to the most famous author in the world. The holiday merriment continues upstairs in the ballroom with musical performances by singers/carolers and a fiddler.
ActivitiesFor more interactive fun: "Splendid Teapot Racing" returns to the roster of events!
