The Aldrich is one of the few independent, non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States, and the only museum in Connecticut devoted to contemporary art. Founded on Ridgefield’s historic Main Street in 1964, the Museum concentrates its exhibition program on solo exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists.

Surrounded by the leafy trees and green lawns of Overpeck Park, the 22-acre Bergen Equestrian Center is designed to keep both humans and horses happy. Locker rooms and showers, a lounge area, and a full kitchen cater to the humans, while 100 custom-built stalls supply the horses with all the creature comforts they could ask for. Each stall is equipped with padded flooring and automatic water dispensers, and each receives a daily cleaning. Climate-controlled tack rooms and 21 grass turnout paddocks are just icing on the hay bale.

The facility is equally impressive when it comes to training. Two indoor and three outdoor riding arenas serve as the stage for horseback-riding lessons for students as young as 5. These lessons teach beginner through advanced skills, all while allowing students to move at their own pace. A Grand Prix field and medieval jousting ring, meanwhile, allow for higher-level training.

From a stone mosaic that lined the floors of a 5th-century synagogue to the final rhyme spit out by a Jewish hip-hop artist, the span of the Jewish Museum's collections is as diverse as it is expansive. What began in 1904 with 26 artifacts has blossomed into a collection of 27,000 paintings, sculptures, and multimedia exhibits that together present a collage of art and Jewish culture from across centuries and continents.

The centerpiece of the Museum is Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey, a permanent exhibition teeming with artifacts, videos, and art that collectively celebrate Jewish identity and the culture's ability to persevere through sometimes tragic circumstances. Artists—from 20th century French master Édouard Vuillard to contemporary American painter Kehinde Wiley—enliven the galleries in rotating exhibitions.

Interactive exhibits such as the Archaeology Zone bring kids within earshot of ancient times as they don ancient costumes and weigh, magnify, and analyze vessels just like anthropologists or careful ancient housewares shoppers. Family activities include holiday-themed art classes and workshops, and The Wind Up series invites adults into the Museum for an after-hours menagerie of cutting-edge music, film, and theatre. After a day of soaking up history, attendees can nosh at Lox at Café Weissman, a certified-kosher café whose stained glass windows shed light on the edible portion of the Jewish journey.
