Clinton Academy in East Hampton is celebrating the holiday season with “It’s a Child’s World: Exhibition of Antique Dolls and Toys,” which will open Saturday and remain on view through Dec. 31. Among the highlights is a Christmas village that sits beneath a tall Douglas fir, the childhood display of an East Hampton resident who has decided to share it with the community.
The exhibition will be open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
