Aluminum Christmas trees became popular in the 1960s and a Wisconsin business, The Aluminum Specialty Company, became the largest manufacturer of these trees. Their tree, the Evergleam, became a remarkable success, with more than one million making their way into American homes. Relive holiday memories, pose for pictures in a replica 1960s living room, and see vintage Evergleams of all types and sizes in this display of shiny aluminum trees.

Exhibit is on view during museum's open hours. Visit to see up-to-date museum hours and admission rates before visiting.
