Albany -- Thronateeska Heritage Center has extended hours and is showing exhibits for free. The museum is celebrating the holidays with a display of 2500 Santa Clause figurines from around the world.

The artwork of Dougherty County students about the social and civil struggles of society is also on display.

Next door at the Planetarium, the "Season of Light" show is currently being featured.

"It's an exciting show about the holidays and Christmas and the history of Christmas and where the stars were in the sky and a little big about different traditions and customs around Christmastime," said Tommy Gregors.

The museum is open Friday December 22nd and Saturday the 23rd. After Christmas on Thursday through Saturday. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost to see a planetarium show is $2.
