Mattatuck Museum Review
This fine collection of 19th- and 20th-century works by Connecticut artists includes the folk paintings of Erastus Salisbury Field, one of the celebrated "iceberg" paintings of Frederic Church, and a whimsical outdoor sculpture by Alexander Calder. The museum's Brass Roots exhibit looks back at the lives of the leaders and workers who transformed Waterbury into one of the nation's leading industrial centers. Within the Mattatuck, the Waterbury Button Museum exhibits approximately 3,000 of these miniature works of art from Waterbury and around the world. There's also a charming café.
