One of the most festive and popular special events of the year, Night at the Museum at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich gives young children the chance to explore the galleries in their pajamas, go on a scavenger hunt, and participate in craft projects. Rounding out the fun are musical performances by Songs for Seeds and experiments with Mad Science. While the youngsters are served up pizza for dinner, adults will enjoy tacos provided by The Old Greenwich Social Club and other bites, an open wine/beer bar, and the chance to bid on exciting items at a silent auction, ranging from a two-night stay at White Elephant in Nantucket to dinner at amazing local restaurants. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Bruce Museum’s children’s education and scholarship program. This year’s Night at the Museum will have a tool theme inspired by the Museum’s current exhibition ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection.

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.
