HOLIDAY DISPLAY 18th Century Créche Marvel at our magnificent Créche or Nativity scene with over 40 handcrafted figures staged in a spectacular 17th Century wooden French corner bed. Originally displayed at The Little Traveler since the 1930s, Geneva History Museum continues this historic holiday tradition. Learn the cultural meaning of the figures including angels, wisemen and shepherds and what they are wearing and doing. See the recent remarkable restoration of the cork and papermaché grotto.
MAIN GALLERY “Geneva’s Story” Geneva’s story is all around us. It is shaped by the river, connected by the railroad, advanced by development, and enhanced by people who visit or call it home. Chapter by chapter, discover our evolving community. We invite you to hear stories, explore objects, and share memories. Explore oral histories, videos and more images on four iPad stations or sit and relax in the Fargo Theater to discover more of Geneva’s rich history.
