International Creche Museum

The largest collection of Christmas Nativity scenes in the world, ranging from those that would suit a shopping mall to those that fit on the head of a thumbtack. If you visit it during the Christmas season you'll also see the largest display of Christmas lights in New England. The museum is on the campus of the National Shrine of Our Lady of LaSalette. If you are into eye-popping religious paraphernalia, take a walk around the grounds. You will not be disappointed.
