Museum to Offer Evening Hours and Free Admission in Spirit of Giving Back
Enjoy evening gallery hours and a variety of activities – including a chance to take a “selfie” with an American Black Bear — with free admission from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“After Hours is a program inspired by the spirit of philanthropy,” says Peter C. Sutton, Executive Director of the Bruce Museum. “We cannot exist without the generous support of the community. Since March 5 is Fairfield County Giving Day, like most other local non-profits, we will be asking for the community’s support. We wanted to also give back to the community, and make accessible the treasure that is the Bruce.”
In addition to free admission and open galleries, the Museum will be offering special tours and other activities designed for families and accessible to all.
- Tara Contractor, the Museum’s Samuel H. Kress Interpretive Fellow and an expert on the Hohenbuchau Collection paintings, will give tours of this outstanding exhibition
- Daniel Ksepka, the Museum’s Curator of Science, will be available for discussion in the permanent science galleries
- Special marine tank animal feedings
- Take a “selfie” with an imposing figure, the Museum’s specimen of an American Black Bear.
