The Bruce Museum is a small, unassuming museum, but manages to pack in a lot of interesting exhibits. Their mineral collection always wows me, as does their Native American exhibit showing how the people lived in the Greenwich area many years ago. Their temporary art exhibits are always top-notch as well.

I've been to Bruce Museum a few times and enjoyed it each time. I like that it's smaller and they have some good exhibits from time to time. I enjoyed the one from a few years ago about Lincoln. The maps exhibits are always nice, too. Price is okay for visiting. It's never EVER crowded. In fact, I think we've... More

Last week when we first discovered this marvelous museum, there was a superb exhibit of art by 16 to 18 year old students who had studied with people from the museum. The vivid colors of another exhibit were eyefilling: Walls of Color: The Murals of Hans Hofmann. There were dozens of representations of one of the seven deadly sins --... More

The Bruce Museum is small, but very nice. The exhibits included art, minerals, culture and history. All very well done and very informative. Great staff that are quite educated about their museum and very welcoming.

This museum is a small jewel in Greenwich. JUST the right size for a day visit, and has something for everyone in your group. I loved the "Seven Deadly Sins - Pride" (what a brilliant idea to spread this exhibit over multiple local museums!) Everyone on the staff was so kind, knowledgeable and welcoming. They helped us with the use... More

The I create exhibit from Ct HS students was on view and it amazes me that such talent is coming from such young people. There were other new exhibits that we plan to see without the young grandchildren who really prefer going to the natural history section and gift shop before we go across the street to Bruce park where...

My family and I visited here for the Northern Baroque painting exhibition. We truly enjoyed the choice of paintings. The gallery was a bit tight as it was a Sunday and there were many tourists as well as a tour. So it was difficult to view the paintings at times. The science galleries while interesting and detailed, were filled with... More

This medium size museum in Greenwich puts on high-quality art and science exhibitions on a temporary basis. Usually the art shows (which are what interests me) proesent works from outstanding local private collections, often of well known artists. From time to time, the museum presents a day-long program of lectures or other presentations on the theme of a current show... More

The exhibits change frequently. The museum is small but well done. Check to see what the exhibits are since they may not appeal to everyone. I enjoyed the Dutch painters exhibit.
