This is a small museum in G'Wich. It's located in an old mansion in a park down near the train station. It's well organized with a very friendly staff. The museum doesn't have much in the way of a permanent painting or sculpture collection, although there are lots of revolving visiting artist exhibits. There is a Childe Hassan there that... More

The new exhibit of Sisley paintings and another new exhibit of miniatures were beautiful things to view. The Bruce museum is small but always has a collection with great impact. It is wonderful to indulge in the paintings and then be awestruck by a unique collection of miniature works like nothing we've ever seen. It is always a joy to... More

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.
