I grew up going to the Bruce Museum and I have always been a fan of their rocks that glowed under a black-light and hands on Native American exhibit, but my last visit to the Bruce took the cake. It had been over 10 years since my last visit to the Bruce when a friend asked me to come along... More

We enjoyed the eclectic mix at this museum. Our favorite exhibit was of the teenage art work. The Beijing-New York exhibit was different.

This was a lovely little museum just a block from the Delamar hotel. The grounds are lovely, lots of trees, across the street from a park. The contents of the museum are a bit random - impressionism, photo journalism, fossils, nature exhibits, etc. - but I thought that added to the charm. One could sample high-quality, interesting exhibits without getting... More

There are two exhibits currently at the museum that have more than a fair share of masterpieces. The first exhibit is Tales of Two Cities: New York and Beijing. The works of Joan Snyder and Wei Jia were mesmerizing. The second exhibit is iCreate, which features works by young "undiscovered" artists. Some of these would be valuable additions to any... More

I visited the Bruce Museum with my parents. The museum is located a block or two from I-95 and has its own parking lot. This is not a large museum, but it has an interesting mix of exhibits. The permanent galleries house works by Connecticut Impressionists including Hassan and others. The New York/Beijing exhibit will be installed through the summer.... More

It may be small, but the collections are impressive. This local museum boasts some very impressive art, as well as very cool natural history displays. I could do without the stuffed animals, which really represents an archaic approach to the environment.

we planned on going to this museum but the outdoor festival with food trucks and crafts was an interesting diversion. The museum was small but interesting. The special photography exhibit was captivating, most especially the photo of the man playing a farewell hymn for Roosevelt's passing-VERY MOVING. The 2 cities exhibit-NY & Beijing was fun, esp. the ink city by... More

We have spent a lot of travel and sightseeing time in Connecticut and had passed the Bruce Museum sign on I-95 probably hundreds of times and never took the exit. Stupid us ! Ever since our first visit about 6 years ago, we now visit at least 2-3 times a year ! The curators of this great small museum always... More

This small museum on a hill with dinosaur sculptures in the front lawn has a combination of art, natural history, and science. The miniatures show they do every year in December is a wonder. There is a touch tank for children in the science area, natural history dioramas and a little bit of information about space. Other rooms have changing... More

I visit this museum a few times a year. Their exhibits are always well mounted. I have never found it to be crowded. A small pearl.Worth a try. Jeremy T
