Arms Family Museum gears up for holiday toursv

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A local museum is currently under repair, but that won’t stop them from having their seventh annual Christmas exhibit.

Workers were busy Wednesday hanging garland and putting up other holiday decorations.

A water pipe broke at the Arms Family Museum this past January causing about $35,000 in damage.

The ceiling was replaced in the dining area and museum experts from Cleveland are fixing the damaged furniture.

“Eighty percent of that ceiling was waterlogged by the pipe breaking, and we determined that it would be more trouble to leave it there and the threat of it falling down later,” said Bill Lawson, executive director of the Mahoning Valley Historical Society.

Although the first floor of the museum is closed, visitors can still tour the lower and second levels for half-price.

The museum will close entirely Nov. 17 and reopen on Nov. 22 for the holiday exhibit.
