The past year has been a catalyst for dramatic change. We have had to make adjustments to our way of life, our usual modes of socialization; it has even impacted us here in our favorite little city, Danbury. We have had to make changes and “pandemic adjust” here at the Danbury Museum, but we never stopped serving the community. In fact, in many ways, we are serving you more now than we ever have before. From enhancing our campus to accommodate free outdoor exhibit experiences, to strengthening our ever-expanding social media presence, to opening up an online gift shop filled with classic Danbury images on all your favorite merchandise, we remain dedicated to being the iconic cornerstone of Danbury upon which you have come to rely.
Though 2021 was, without doubt, a very challenging year for us here at the museum, we are bolstered by your continual love and support. We cannot begin to express our gratitude for your kind words, hopeful messages, and return visits to your beloved institution. You inspire us to strive for excellence. What we’ve learned is that excellence is linked with reaching audiences we’ve never connected with before and crafting unique pathways to be as inclusive as possible in our storytelling and archival efforts. Danbury is a melting pot of cultures, races, and ethnicities. It is our job to ensure that we tell the stories of all the peoples (past & present) that make up Danbury, and we hope that we can count on you to support us as we continue to do the work to reflect our community as a whole.
It is through your generosity that our community prospers, especially in turbulent times such as these. With the assistance of our fantastic members and donors, the Danbury Museum has this year been able to:
