The Los Altos History Museum will be transported to 315 Main St. during this year’s Holiday Stroll, scheduled 5-9 p.m. Friday in downtown Los Altos.

Supporters urge visitors to stop by and learn more about the museum. Museum representatives will highlight exhibitions and offer strollers wine, cider, coffee and treats.

To promote the silver anniversary of the museum’s annual Crab Feed & Auction, scheduled 5:30 p.m. Feb. 4 at Hillview Community Center, 97 Hillview Ave., supporters have organized a raffle.

The raffle winner will receive a Links of London sterling-silver five-strand necklace. Donated by Khatchig Jingirian and Pamela Purcell Smith of Smythe & Cross Fine Jewelry at 350 Main St., the necklace is valued at more than $1,000.

Tickets may be purchased at Smythe & Cross and the Los Altos History Museum for $10 per ticket, or three for $20. Proceeds benefit the museum.

The museum’s current exhibition, “Shaped by Water: Past, Present & Future,” is scheduled through April 22. The display features photographs, art, stories and interactive activities that highlight the role water plays in daily life.

The Los Altos History Museum is located at 51 S. San Antonio Road. Hours are noon to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. Admission is free.
