Fodor's Review

The owner of this 19th-century home, wealthy textile merchant Robert Moffat Bruce, bequeathed it to the town of Greenwich in 1908 with the stipulation that it be used "as a natural history, historical, and art museum." Today this diversity remains, reflected in the museum's collection of some 15,000 objects in fine and decorative arts, natural history, and anthropology, including paintings by Childe Hassam, sculptures by Auguste Rodin, and stained glass by Dale Chihuly. On permanent display is a spectacular mineral collection. Kids enjoy the touchable meteorite and glow-in-the-dark minerals, as well as the fossilized dinosaur tracks.
