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 June--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 coming soon! Stay tuned. . .
The Danbury Museum staff, Board of Trustees, and volunteers are most grateful for the generous operating support that has been provided to the Danbury Museum from CT Humanities with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts from the Connecticut State Legislature. This grant enables us to keep our small staff working, our bills paid, and allows us all (staff, board, volunteers) to continue the mission-based work we love to do.
Many thanks to our entire legislative team for making this possible! #CTCulturalFund, #CTHFunded, and #ctarts
State Representative Bob Godfrey

We're so looking forward to welcoming researchers back to the Danbury Museum! 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 $10, but must be booked 24 hours in advance, and are available Wednesday through Saturday at 1pm.
Buildings included are the John & Mary Rider House, the John Dodd Hat Shop, the Little Red School House and the Marian Anderson Studio.
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.”
