Out of an abundance of caution, the Whaling Museum is closed until further notice, due to the recent spike in Covid19 cases on the Island.
The Festival of Trees extravaganza will extend through Valentine’s Day.
We look forward to welcoming visitors back when it is deemed safe to do so. We wish everyone a safe and joyous.
Until we can be together again, we hope you’ll enjoy this video that captures the beauty of all 53 trees. Dedicated to the Nantucket Center for Elder Affairs, Friends of Nantucket Seniors, and all our talented tree designers.
Festival of Trees 2020
The Festival of Trees is the NHA’s highly anticipated holiday tradition that transforms the Whaling Museum into a festive winter wonderland for the entire month of December! This event features community-crafted trees designed by local merchants, nonprofit organizations, artists, and children. The NHA is extremely grateful for the involvement and support of the many individuals and organizations that contribute to the success of the Festival of Trees. Your creativity and talent make it all possible.
To ensure the safety of our visitors and the community the Festival of Trees will be slightly adjusted to adhere to safety protocols and allow for more viewing time for visitors. No Preview Party will be held.
