The Bruce Museum, Greenwich’s world-class community-based art and science institution, has undergone a transformative $65 million capital expansion plan that includes a three-story, 43,000-square-foot addition that more than doubles the size of the Museum and includes state-of-the-art exhibition galleries for art and science and new education and community spaces.
“This is an incredibly exciting moment for Greenwich and its hometown Museum, and for the entire Fairfield-Westchester region.
I know I speak for our family of staff, members, volunteers, and Trustees in expressing our profound gratitude to the community for their support.”
— Robert Wolterstorff, The Susan E. Lynch Executive Director, Bruce Museum
The new addition features the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Education Wing, as well as the contemporary and spacious William L. Richter Art Wing with its four leading edge galleries, vastly expanded accommodations for changing art exhibitions and, for the first time, significant space to show the Museum’s permanent art collection. The entire ground floor will be free and open to the public during museum hours and include a brand-new Museum Store, inviting café with indoor and outdoor seating, a state-of-the-art auditorium and meeting spaces available for special-event use by local community groups, families, and businesses.
The New Bruce campus will feature a Sculpture Garden, landscaped walking paths and inviting spaces for relaxation and contemplation… natural enhancements to Bruce Park.
With its Endowment growing by $15 million, the reimagined Bruce will be enjoyed and sustained for generations to come.
“I am considering the Bruce at the level of the Met…the two institutions are devoted essentially to the same thing: excellence in the execution of their responsibilities.”
— Philippe de Montebello, Former Director, Metropolitan Museum of Art
