Bruce Birthday Bash!

Saturday, April 6, 2024, 11:00 AM-3:00 PM

The Bruce Museum is celebrating the one-year birthday of its expanded galleries and public spaces.

Come party with us at the Bruce Birthday Bash on Saturday April 6th from 11am-3pm!

Tickets at the door, and discounts applied in person.

Celebrate this milestone birthday with public workshops, hands-on activities, and a building wide selfie scavenger hunt.

The Museum is thrilled to celebrate our first birthday with our community partners: go on a tree tour with the Greenwich Tree Conservancy, learn about eclipses with the Astronomical Society, do map making with the Greenwich Historical Society, and more. Visit our workshops and meet our team of in-house educators who will be running STEAM activities.

Attendees can expect to have a blast and celebrate their favorite local Museum while exploring world class exhibitions. Do not forget to stop by the café, where there are special treats for all visitors under the age of 18.

Admission is free for those under 18 and is generously provided by John and Barbara Kavanagh. Admission is required for everyone 18 and up. The Bruce Museum is also free this weekend for all Bank of America cardholders thanks to our partnership with the Bank of America Museums on Us program.
