The annual Fantasy of Trees exhibit is now showing in the Stuhr Building and there is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than viewing over 50 decorated trees in the elegant Stuhr Building. The exhibit runs through January 3, 2017.

This annual "celebration of decoration" features trees lining the walls of the Stuhr Building's main floor and South Gallery, dreamt up and decorated by local area organizations, businesses and individuals. From the festive to the fun, from the elaborate to the simple, there's a wide variety of decoration on display and there's something for everyone to enjoy. Stuhr Museum appreciates everyone who took the time to enter this year.
