The Bruce Museum enlightens inquisitive visitors with diverse collections of art- and science-related objects displayed in rotating and permanent exhibitions. With a yearlong membership, museum-goers can enjoy free admission and future Jeopardy! conquests, viewing exhibits such as Bijoux: The Origins and Impact of Jewelry, which explores the materials used to make jewelry and the economic and environmental issues associated with the jewelry market (through March 11, 2012). The history of African sculpture used to effect change in communities takes life in the Power Incarnate: Allan Stone’s Collection of Sculpture from the Congo (through September 4, 2011), and a collection of Picasso's linear style etchings entitled Picasso’s Vollard Suite: The Sculptor’s Studio grants viewers a glimpse into the artist's antiquity-inspired three dimensional works and little known early Archie comic-strip musings (through October 16, 2011). History buffs can add to their list of conversation topics with permanent exhibitions exploring the earth's minerals, humanity's use of natural resources, and woodland ecosystems.

The Bruce Museum's members enjoy free admission to outdoor arts and crafts festivals, a 10% discount on Museum Store purchases, reduced rates for programs, a monthly e-newsletter, and a particularly warm welcome for any entrants named Bruce. The museum's location near Greenwich Avenue gives visitors ample dining and shopping opportunities as well as an easy walk to Bruce Park.

Bruce Museum

In 1858, textile merchant Robert Bruce became the owner of the building that houses the museum named after him, and he ensured he would be the last one. Shortly before his death in 1909 and after a half-century inhabiting the house, he deeded his home to the town of Greenwich, as long as it would become a museum focused on art and science. In 2012, the museum celebrated its centennial year with a special exhibit of recent and promised gifts to the permanent collection.

With a total of 14 art and science exhibitions and more than 15,000 art and science items each year, the Bruce Museum continues to live out Robert Bruce's mission, with a series of permanent and rotating exhibits, as well as a series of lectures and events. Programs offered at the museum include Art Adventures, Family Studio Workshops, and art lectures. A few miles away, at Greenwich Point, its Seaside Center educates visitors about the environment and ecology of Long Island Sound, featuring events such as Science Sundays and animal feedings.

The museum's location near Greenwich Avenue gives visitors ample dining and shopping opportunities as well as an easy walk to Bruce Park.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful exhibits
Stacy W. · November 4, 2016
The Bruce Museum has wonderful exhibits, that change pretty often...some amazing art-work and wonderful curators. Staff is very friendly and helpful. they're community-minded. Rather than rent little machines to tell you about different pictures, some of their exhibits have a cell phone # to call & get a recorded description about a particular painting or sculpture; it's very easy to use this. The Bruce is very handi-capped friendly, for people who use Walkers or Wheelchairs...the staff does other education programs for the handi-capped, including art-making programs, which are a lot of fun. It's a great staff and the museum is a real gem.

I went with an 11 an 13 year old to the Bruce Museum. They loved the teen art exhibit, and had a grand time with the hands-on electricity exhibit. It was a great experience for all three of us.
