I learn a lot when I go there. The museum is a nice size. Cool rock exhibit. Changing science stuff with a dynamic curator who knows his stuff and can tell you about it. Great art that changes a lot with the help of NY curator Ken Silver!

Adorable, accessible, and free on Tuesdays! 4 separated exhibition spaces provide a lovely combination of art and science, interestingly curated. Not a pale reflection of NYC's large museums, The Bruce has chosen to find interesting perspectives and make them come alive. Yesterday, there were terrific botanical etchings, an exhibit of paintings by women from the homes of the local collectors... More

they change exhibits often and even though this is a small place, the works are always something extraordinary. My grandson particularly likes the natural history section and a toy from the museum shop on each visit.

I have lived in Greenwich for 25+ years and have been to the Bruce several times. The museum continues to improve and offer a wide variety of attractions, lectures, tours, and stimulating, interactive exhibits for all ages. Highly recommended for all ages. Be sure to visit the gift shop.

All ages can come and enjoy the shows that are at the Bruce. It's in a good location, parking is plentiful and free, and the store has fabulous and many one of a kind items. I have gone with my grandchildren and with peers, so anyone can see something of value at the museum.

My two children resisted this visit strenuously but in the end really enjoyed it. It has terrific mineral exhibits (I'm no geologist but these were stunning) and a god natural world section. The temporary electricity exhibit was very hands on and we spent a long time in there trying them all out. There was a photography and a French art... More

Great museum off the beaten path. Always new and interesting exhibitions and some wonderful home collections. When we visited there was an interactive electricity exhibit that had the youngsters involved. Also some vintage photographs showing studies of motion.

You do not have to go to NYC to see great art. The Bruce Museum is right here and will bring it to you. The science exhibits are excellent and great for the family.

We have been patrons for many years and it is a true gem. The exhibits are of the highest quality. The current show, Electric Paris, is not to be missed. It includes paintings from many of the top museums. There are also areas suited for children. The entrance fee is quite reasonable and it is free on Tuesdays. Though my... More
