This little museum is well worth a visit. It is located on a small hill, and there is visitor parking (which was not immediately clear from their web site). The museum has three sections, at least one of which is always devoted to a special exhibition. At the time of my visit, this was a splendid selection of Northern Baroque... More

Have gone by it many times when on Rt 95 in Greenwich and finally stopped in to see it. Wish the day was nicer as would have been fun to sit outside and have lunch. Spent about 75 mins inside. Nice collection, albeit limited. Personable staff. If in the area whether living nearby, visiting someone or just have some time... More

This is a gem of a museum easily accessible from Manhattan via railroad from Grand Central to Greenwich Ct and then a five minute walk. They often have exhibits of art that you can't see anywhere else. It is a beautiful town to walk around and have lunch. Pick a nice day and go.

I am usually not impressed by the exhibits at Bruce: too much money spent with little result. But this time the museum has outdone itself: Northern Baroque Splendor. The HOHENBUCHAU COLLECTION from: LIECHTENSTEIN. The Princely Collections, Vienna are currently on exhibit. Mostly Dutch and Flemish 17th Century paintings will keep you spell-bound for a while. Even if you don’t have... More

An odd but intriguing combination of art history display and natural history section, very conveniently located at exit 3 of I-95, Greenwich, CT. An easy but rewarding pit stop. Has good temporary exhibits. We came for the Mannerist and Baroque paintings in a traveling exhibit from Lichtenstein, which was outstanding, but unexpectedly got sidetracked for a few minutes into the... More

Free admission because the main hall was being prepared for an exhibition. Still, we had a great time viewing Roz Chast's cartoon collection, Extreme Habitats and the permanent exhibits. My kids loved the dinosaur models and the birds, and especially the tank that had live horseshoe crab and other interesting crustaceans and fish. Hope to come back again.

I've been to many art museums but not any that combines art exhibits with those of science and history. An aquarium was there as well with a docent explaining the life of horseshoe crabs. Wonderful display of Andrew Wyeth's art as well as textural art by another artist. Connecticut history and artifacts were well displayed. Welcoming staff was there to... More

I used to come here every summer when I was a kid so I made a point of visiting when I was back in town. The volunteer (or employee?) running the desk was more interested in whoever was on the phone than in us, so we had to wait while she advised them a good restaurant in town, its address,... More
