Touching on Traditions

People from around the world have made their homes in Elgin. They brought with them beliefs and traditions from their countries of origin giving the Elgin community a rich diversity, which is now a part of our cultural heritage. Visit the Museum’s winter holiday exhibition, featuring displays and objects of traditional holiday significance.

Prints are on loan from Peter Olson and are also for sale.
