Frohman. Numerous artifacts recovered from the site in recent years are on display. The museum is CLOSED on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The museum is OPEN on Presidents’ Day (Feb 16) with special hours: 12-5 pm.

Now it’s up to her to open new windows and show the boy worlds he never knew existed. Through the Roaring 20s and the Great Depression, Mame teaches Patrick how to “live, live, live”—whether he’s willing or not. It’s the dazzling musical that proves life’s a banquet, featuring the classic songs “We Need a Little Christmas,” “It’s Today,” “Bosom Buddies” and, of course, “Mame.” Recommended for children ages 8 and up.
