Event description: This year's theme "Our Civil Rights" features performances by Encore Performing Art's Flying Ship Productions at 11:00 am and again at 1:00 pm of Rosa's Ride: The Life of Rosa Parks. This theatrical experience for young audiences follows the struggles of a young girl through the indignities of prejudice to discover her strength of conviction, as a simple act of civil disobedience gives birth to the civil rights movement. The program is suitable for students ages 5 and up. Students of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to make "I have a dream ..." buttons and add their self-portraits to the Circle of Friends mural as well as explore the Museum's galleries and exhibitions.

About Bruce Museum


The Bruce Museum is a regionally based, world-class institution highlighting art, science and natural history in more than a dozen changing exhibitions annually. The permanent galleries feature the natural sciences that encompass regional to global perspectives. 

The museum was originally built as a private home in 1853. Robert Moffat Bruce (1822-1909), a wealthy textile merchant and member of the New York Cotton Exchange, bought the house and property in 1858 and deeded them to the Town on Greenwich in 1908.
