Great tour and museum. The staff was great really a gem in ridge field. The cannonball and hearths are worth a trip alone.

For $8, the tour of Keeler Tavern is a steal. The 45-1hr tour was lead by a young man who was full of knowledge and history. We even learned where the terms "sweet tooth", "house warming" and "sleep tight" came from. Highly recommend the tour...More

This is an old standby in Ridgefield and for good reason. Its history stretches back to prior to the American revolution and there are great artifacts for young and old.

Depends on the interest of the group. The tours are typically 45 minutes, but an interested group can usually stretch that to an hour if they aren't too busy. Plus figure in some gift shop time. Note groups of 8 or more can... More
