The Danbury Museum's Response to Covid-19


As you may be aware, the State of CT has declared a public health emergency  in response to COVID-19.  

Due to current guidance from the Danbury Health Department and in the  interest of protecting the high-risk populations we serve and the 

high-risk populations who volunteer for us, the Danbury Museum is  canceling all programs, events, rentals, historic house tours, exhibition  viewings, and outreach activities during the month of March. The  Danbury Museum will not be accommodating onsite research.


If your community group has booked rental space at the Danbury Museum to  meet, we will be in contact to reschedule. Our interest is to continue serving our community while maintaining the  safety and health of our staff, volunteers, and public.


We will continue to communicate any further impacts to the Danbury  Museum as a result of  COVID-19. In the meantime, as a reminder, the  Danbury Museum has several social media platforms and will endeavor to  supply a higher volume of content over the next few weeks.

Savings Bank of Danbury Partners with the Danbury Museum on Rehabilitating the Charles Ives Home to Celebrate Shared History

In honor of their 170th anniversary, the Savings Bank of Danbury will sponsor Phase III of the rehabilitation of the Charles Ives Home, an important piece of Danbury and the Bank’s history.

“This project is only possible because the Savings Bank of Danbury chose to tell the story of their history through our Danbury Museum,” said Brigid Guertin, Executive Director of the Danbury Museum and Historical Society.  “Their story is part of the history of Danbury and they continue to be a strong supporter and member of our community. The result of our efforts will be a world class destination that we can all be proud of.”
