‘Tis the Season Holiday Tour in New York City

During the holiday season the entire city of New York comes alive with a glittering display of festive decorations. A joyous holiday buzz is palpable across the city, and there are no shortage of ways to celebrate the season.

ART SMART has crafted the perfect holiday experience in NYC, inspired by the most iconic symbol of the season: The Christmas tree! On our Holiday Tree Tour your personal art historian guide will lead you through The Metropolitan Museum of Art. You will explore the historical beginnings of the season and discover holiday traditions from around the world. At the center of the tour is The Met’s elaborately decorated Christmas tree that stretches toward the ceiling, and a vibrant Neapolitan Nativity scene from the 18th century. The glowing display is accompanied by recorded music and lighting ceremonies.

For those who want to focus on the magical, spiritual aspects of Christmas we could also include a visit to The Met’s Cloisters Museum, which is decorated with beautiful garlands and wreaths for the holidays.

Enjoy the beauty of the season and create lasting memories with your loved ones on ART SMART’s ‘Tis the Season Holiday Tree Tour in NYC.
