Chilly Willy Winter’s Eve Tours
November 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Bronck Museum will once again be holding its popular Chilly Willy tours. These special content tours are designed to provide visitors with a small taste of winter living in times past, long before the comfort and convenience provided by central heating and artificial light made winter life much easier. A costumed guide will lead visitors through the interiors of the venerable Bronck houses decorated for the celebration of the late fall and early winter holidays of Martinmas, St. Nicholas Day and St. Lucia Day. The old traditions associated with these now largely forgotten holidays will be remembered and retold. What a great way to begin your holiday season!
The Chilly Willy tours will be offered at 1pm and 3pm on Friday, November 18th and at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Saturday and Sunday, November 19th and 20th. Advance reservations are required for these popular tours. Tickets are $10.00 per person, be sure to purchase the correct number of tickets for the number of people in your party! Space is limited to eight people per tour due to COVID.
The Bronck Museum is located just off US 9W 1.5 miles south of the intersection of routes 385, 81 and 9W near Coxsackie, NY and is easily accessible from NYS Thruway exit 21B.
