The Museum grounds are transformed into a Christmas Festival featuring Victorian period entertainment, walk-through tours of the festively decorated Banning Mansion, blacksmith demonstrations, refreshments, family holiday crafts, a bake sale, local food vendors, handmade crafts by area artisans, and Jolly Ol' St. Nick himself will pose for photos with the little ones in an historic carriage. One of the highlights of the festivities is a horse-drawn trolley ride to the Drum Barracks Civil War Museum, also in Wilmington. The Banning Museum, 401 East “M” Street, Wilmington.
