The holidays are happening at the Carnegie Museum of Art where many families make an annual pilgrimage to see the holiday trees and the 250-year-old Italian nativity called the Presepio. Every Saturday afternoon through December 18, the Museum has live concerts among the trees, and if you want to learn more about the Precepio, there are drop-in “art chats” Thursday evenings and twice on Saturdays. All are included with admission.

KDKA’s Kristine Sorensen takes us on a tour with the museum’s curator of decorative arts and design, Rachel Delphia.

But bring your own ring, though, there is one on top as the tree topper.
