Boston Children’s Museum — which is sometimes the “Boston Grown-Ups Museum” — opened its doors to a 21-plus crowd Wednesday night for its Ugly Sweater Party. The celebration drew a crowd decked in their loudest holiday attire. Here were some of the more memorable looks during the event, which doubled as a drive for Toys for Tots.
