Our Mission: The Bruce Museum promotes the understanding and appreciation of Art and Science to enrich the lives of all people.
What to Expect
Consistently voted the "Best Museum" by area media, 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.
Located about 6 1/2 miles from the main Museum in Greenwich, the Seaside Center is a beachside facility located on Greenwich Point. The Seaside Center aims to educate visitors about the ecology of Long Island Sound and environmental issues.
The Seaside Center is open to the public from June 30 – August 27, 2011, 10 AM – 4 PM. The Center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
