Community, Collections & Conversation

20 January - 17 March, 2018.

Our annual Community, Collections & Conversation exhibit opens on Saturday, January 20 at 10 am. This year's collection comes to us from the reenactors of the 11th Regiment Connecticut Volunteer Infantry, Co. A. 

In addition to the exhibit there will be two Civil War conversations with some of the reenactors in our Huntington Hall on February 10 and March 3 from 1pm - 3pm.

The exhibit will be open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 am to 4 pm until Saturday, March 17, 2018.

The exhibit and the conversation events are FREE and open to the public.

Coming Soon!

Open Yale Course -- European Civilization 1648 - 1945

This course offers a broad survey of modern European history, from the end of the Thirty Years’ War to the aftermath of World War II. The period will be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. 

We're pleased to offer this course in cooperation with the Danbury Public Library. Check back for dates, times, and locations.
