In keeping with current COVID health-safety measures mandated by the state of Connecticut, capacity is limited and advance reservations are required.  The Museum is open during Festival hours, and attendees are welcome to experience Let in, Let go, a multi-sensory video projection installation created by Holly Danger, a video artist based in Stamford, CT. On view in the Museum’s main gallery through Sunday, May 30, Let in, Let go, explores the synchronization of video, art, light, and sound, and how it relates to emotion, connection, and the present moment.

About Bruce Museum

1 Museum Dr.

Greenwich, CT


    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.
