The Museum will also be collecting new and gently loved stuffed animals for the Teddy Bear Brigade for Gleaning for the World.  The trains will run six days a week from Friday November 29th until Saturday January 25th.  Th

ere will be special hours on Friday nights in December leading up to Christmas.  There is no cost to see the display but donations are accepted.
