Inspired by the CT Summer Museums initiative and as a gift to the visitors and residents of the Danbury community, the Danbury Cultural Commission is financially supporting FREE tours at the Danbury Museum from September 9 through December 17.
Together, we celebrate the city, the community, and the museum's 80th anniversary.
These free tours will allow us to improve equitable access to the Museum and our programming across greater Danbury.
It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating our 75th Anniversary! We know you ❤️ Danbury just like we do, so our special exhibit opening this July--indoors and out!--will showcase 80 items that help us tell the story of Danbury. Danbury (Re) Discovered: Eighty Years :: Eighty Objects :: Eighty Stories is OPEN! All are welcome (Wednesday through Saturday, from 12-4) and there is no charge!
ALL research must be scheduled 48 hours in advance to allow us to gather items for your visit and assure that we are safely accommodating as many of you as possible.
At this time, we can only accommodate one researcher per scheduled appointment, so please plan accordingly.
Research appointments are available Wednesday through Saturday, at 1pm. Each appointment is two hours in length.
Research appointments are FREE, but need to be booked in advance.
Guided tours of the four historic buildings on our 43 Main Street campus are available to book online. These tours are FREE this summer from July 1 through September 3 (thanks to a very generous grant from CT Humanities) but must be booked 24 hours in advance, and are available Friday and Saturday at 12:30 pm.
Buildings included are the John & Mary Rider House, the John Dodd Hat Shop, the Little Red School House and the Marian Anderson Studio.
