Origami Holiday Tree

Now Open

Tall evergreen tree covered in intricately folded paper decorations.

The theme of the 2016 Origami Holiday Tree is Dinosaurs Among Us.

An annual tradition, the delightfully decorated Origami Holiday Tree has marked the start of the holiday season at the Museum for more than 30 years. The tree is decorated with handmade origami models inspired by items in the permanent halls, current exhibitions, and Museum collections. Volunteers began folding in March to complete the hundreds of creations displayed on the tree.

During the holiday season, knowledgable volunteers will be on hand to teach visitors of all ages the art of origami folding.
