Located in a very nice park that used to be much larger before I-95 was constructed in the 1950s. It is at the southern end of Greenwich Ave where it turns into Steamboat Rd. It is not a big, impressive museum, but the scale is appealing to children because you can spend less than an hour (max attention span) and... More

What a totally terrific museum. This place has many wonderful exhibits. At the beginning, there is a fascinating set of displays both describing earth’s geologic history in abbreviated, easy to understand text and also displaying many samples of rocks and minerals that may be found around our globe. As you move through to the next section, there are dioramas of... More

There was a fossil exhibit, some impressionist art, and a few interesting sculptures. Not much of anything to warrant a special trip here. I had a pass from my hotel which saved me the usual $7 entrance fee. Even for free, it wasn't worth the time.

Especially enjoyed the Davis impressionist paintings and the unique sculpture exhibit. We just happened to be passing by the aquarium at feeding time, about 1:45pm. The staff person discussed the aquarium contents with us, their habits and origination. A great time to visit the aquarium.

Great little museum in Greenwich Connecticut. Great local museum which has a very good rocks and minerals exhibition. The museum could be larger and have more to do with science instead of art, but I understand what they can do with the money they have. Also while visiting make sure to check out their lovely little gift shop. Be sure... More

I love this museum. Exhibits range from art to science and it's very family friendly. Each exhibit is small, but each item is well-documented and laid out in a logical order. In addition, there is a fabulous playground across the street if the kids need a change of pace after the museum visit.

For a lovely break from the often overwhelming museums in Manhattan, enjoy this small, wonderful space in Greenwich. A nice mix of changing exhibits - primarily art - and permanent exhibits - history, geology, science - set in a park near Long Island Sound and a short walk to the main shopping District.

The Bruce Museum was beautifully redone several years ago. The art exhibit they had at the time was very comprehensive for a small town museum. They also have permanent art and natural history exhibits. Tuesday is a free day; which is always nice. They have added some wonderful programs for children (starting with a toddlers' group). The program consists of... More

Nice little museum; interesting and varied exhibits. Current exhibition of Hans Hoffman works is very good. Accessibility is excellent; while we brought our own wheelchair, they do have them available for use by patrons. I wish they had a little cafe or something though. It's always nice to sit and talk after seeing an exhibit.
