PROMO: The Orange County Regional History Center (Facebook | Website) will be hosting an auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and gifts this holiday season, including unique gifts you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

The History Center’s experience auction features a variety of options including:

  • Behind-the-Scenes Collection Tour – Get a look at The History Center’s collection of over 35,000 items in the museum’s 1927 Courthouse building and in the top-secret, climate-controlled warehouse that isn’t normally open to the public.
