Residents are invited to the Temecula Valley Museum for the special “Nutty for Nutcrackers” exhibit.
The exhibit, open now through December, showcases an extension collection of nutcrackers courtesy of Temecula resident Bev Gutman.
Featuring hundreds of nutcrackers of all sizes and shapes, some of the figures are from famous German manufacturers like Ulbricht and Steinbach or Kurt S. Adler in New York.
The museum will host a free Nutcracker Scavenger Hunt from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15 after The Nutcracker Ballet performance at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater in Temecula.
Also, a free Old-Fashioned Christmas Crafts workshop is planned from 10 a.m. to noon on Dec. 15.
Participants can make a unique gift for someone special and have fun making beeswax candles and Christmas window decorations.
The Temecula Valley Museum is located in Sam Hicks Monument Park at 28314 Mercedes Street in Temecula.
Admission to the museum is a $2 suggested donation.
