The sights of Christmas are now on display at The Museum of North Texas History.

Saturday was opening day for their "Tinsel Trees and Timeless Memories" display.

It features Christmas trees commemorating each decade from 1870 to 1970.

And has hand painted Santa figurines and nutcrackers and a classic model train.

It also has a replica of Wichita Falls' first church "The Little Brown Church" that features a working bell.

Organizers say it's important to showcase Christmas while highlighting our local culture.

“Christmas time, the whole holiday season is a time for people coming together and so it is just one more example of how we do that here in the Texoma area and it makes everybody feel special,” says Charles Campbell with The Museum of North Texas History.

The exhibit is open through Christmas.
