As a member supported nonprofit, we welcome you to take advantage of all that there is to see, learn and do here as often as you like. Members enjoy unlimited access to exhibitions, house museums, and the research library, as well as free admission to most programs and events. We encourage you to join and support our mission.
The Museum relies on its volunteers to help in a variety of capacities. Whether you want to be a docent for a school tour, an assistant to an exhibition curator, or a researcher, we have myriad needs and opportunities to suit every interest. For questions or to get involved, please call Nancy Geary, Executive Director at 203-966-1776 ext. 2.
We rely on the generosity of our members and donors. Your dollars go to mount exhibitions, preserve house museums and collections, run programs, and operate our extensive campus. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and all gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

BUILD OUR COLLECTION
The Museum’s permanent collections have been built through the generous donations of members and residents. Our Accessions Committee meets quarterly to review all donations and determine whether each item is appropriate for incorporation by considering its ties to our mission, its condition, and whether it is duplicative of items already part of the collections.
