I have lived in Greenwich for 25+ years and have been to the Bruce several times. The museum continues to improve and offer a wide variety of attractions, lectures, tours, and stimulating, interactive exhibits for all ages. Highly recommended for all ages. Be sure to visit the gift shop.

All ages can come and enjoy the shows that are at the Bruce. It's in a good location, parking is plentiful and free, and the store has fabulous and many one of a kind items. I have gone with my grandchildren and with peers, so anyone can see something of value at the museum.

My two children resisted this visit strenuously but in the end really enjoyed it. It has terrific mineral exhibits (I'm no geologist but these were stunning) and a god natural world section. The temporary electricity exhibit was very hands on and we spent a long time in there trying them all out. There was a photography and a French art... More

Great museum off the beaten path. Always new and interesting exhibitions and some wonderful home collections. When we visited there was an interactive electricity exhibit that had the youngsters involved. Also some vintage photographs showing studies of motion.

You do not have to go to NYC to see great art. The Bruce Museum is right here and will bring it to you. The science exhibits are excellent and great for the family.

We have been patrons for many years and it is a true gem. The exhibits are of the highest quality. The current show, Electric Paris, is not to be missed. It includes paintings from many of the top museums. There are also areas suited for children. The entrance fee is quite reasonable and it is free on Tuesdays. Though my... More

I recently stopped by the Bruce while trying to kill time in the area (really) and I was pleasantly surprised at the variety in this museum. I only had time to see the children's book exhibit (very nice, but now closed) and the Paris paintings. Both were well worth it! There was also a science part of the museum that... More

The Bruce is a top-notch local museum. It never disappoints. Small in size, it draws excellent exhibitions and offers a fine permanent collection. The Bruce offers children's programs, adult lectures, outdoor art shows, etc. everything is top- notch. Their gift shop is also impressive with items available in all price ranges. I try to go as often as possible.

We saw a collection of paintings of large cats, lions, tigers, etc. The artist used them to design scarves for Hermes. Beautiful. They also had a nice craft/art show we visited. Nicely done.

Went to this museum today and was pleasantly surprised with the variety and detail of the exhibits. They currently have an extensive art exhibit based around Paris and a children's book illustration exhibit. I believe these are both temporary but both are brilliant and worth the price of admission. Their trademark natural history exhibits are also top notch. I highly... More
