The museum’s set of crèche figurines is one of only three in the United States, with the other two in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the White House. The museum’s crèche figures, each a work of art, range from six to twenty inches in height. They have finely crafted bodies of fiber and wire, and their heads and shoulders were modeled out of terracotta. Many of the luxurious and colorful costumes are original, and a few have been carefully restored over the years.
