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.

Went here for an exhibit that was on night animals it was very interactive and great for the family. People in the museum are really nice. The main exhibits on the CT area itself are really fun.

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
