Admission is $2 general and free for members. Go to moah.org.

Art and exhibits

Many art galleries have holiday shows and sales in December, often with smaller works of art displayed as gift suggestions. To name two: Gallery House's event is at 320 S. California Ave. in Palo Alto through Dec. 24, open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 11 to 3. Go to galleryhouse2.com.

Potpourri

"Chopshticks" is a comedy night for folks who think of Dec. 24 as just another night.

Tickets are $55 in advance and $60 at the door, and $50 in advance for JCC members. Go to paloaltojcc.org.
