Our Mission: The Bruce Museum promotes the understanding and appreciation of Art and Science to enrich the lives of all people.
What to Expect
The Bruce Museum is a community 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 Bruce Museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
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.
The Seaside Center is a beachside museum located in Greenwich Point Park, Old Greenwich, about 6 1/2 miles from the main Bruce Museum in Greenwich. Located in the Floren Family Environmental Center at Innis Arden Cottage, Greenwich Point Park, Old Greenwich, CT
The Campaign for the New Bruce includes $45 million in construction costs, as well as $15 million of added support to the Museum’s Endowment to ensure sustainability. When complete, this unprecedented initiative will more than double the size of the Museum, from 30,000 square feet to 70,000 square feet, adding state-of-the-art exhibition, education, and community spaces and significantly expanding its space for permanent and changing installations of art, science, and natural history exhibitions.
