Chilly Willy Winter’s Eve Tours
November 20, 2021 - November 21, 2021
The Bronck Museum will once again be holding its popular Chilly Willy tours on the weekend of November 20th and 21st.
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 retold. What a great way to begin your holiday season!
The Chilly Willy tours will be offered at 11am, 1pm and 3 pm both Saturday and Sunday November 20th and 21st. 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. Admission is $10 per person. Advance reservations are required for these popular tours and may be made by visiting the museum’s website at gchistory.org.
