Christmas is in the air and what better way to get in the holiday spirit than to visit the AMST to see The 5th annual CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD EXHIBIT! Once again, the Museum has partnered with the Junior League of Corpus Christi, H-E-B and area schools to bring the Christmas Tree Forest to you!
Reflecting the theme of Christmas Around the World, the forest will be made up of individual trees decorated to represent various countries. Based on a first-come, first-served basis, 30 school groups were selected to research their chosen countries, create themed decorations and trim their trees accordingly. As an added bonus, Museum visitors will once again be able to cast their votes for their top three favorite trees. Winning school groups will receive generous H-E-B gift cards.

The Christmas Tree Forest will be on view from Saturday, November 22nd through Wednesday, December 17th. A special free Family Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on December 13th for the community to enjoy. Click here to download this year's poster. After the exhibit concludes, all trees and decorations will be donated to families in need to enjoy during the remainder of the holiday season.

To schedule your group visit to view the Christmas Tree Forest, please call 361-825-3504 or email Limited tour times are available.
