Bruce Museum

This Greenwich institution began in 1853 in the private home of lawyer, clergyman, and historian Francis Lister Hawks. Five years later, textile merchant Robert Moffat Bruce bought the property and its holdings. At the end of his life he deeded the house and its treasures to the town of Greenwich. Today, 15,000 objects fill out the museum’s collection, which pays homage to both arts and science. Photography, sculpture, and paintings are regularly featured in the Bruce’s changing exhibitions, while its permanent showings explore the natural world.

Flinn Gallery

The Flinn opened in 1928, when a forward-thinking librarian secured the space and funding to display the work of the Greenwich Society of Artists. Today, it is a prime showcase of local, national, and international artwork. Many pieces are for sale, and proceeds go toward supporting community programs at the Friends of Greenwich Library.
