Education programs align with local and Connecticut language arts and social studies curriculum, the National Council for Social Studies C3 Frameworks, and reinforce Common Core goals.

Creating Community: Exploring 375 Years of Our Past is an ambitious exhibition that engages visitors with the past through dynamic and interactive activities. The exhibit covers nearly 375 years of regional history, using the town of Fairfield as a model for a changing community. Through success and failure, loss and prestige, Fairfield emerged as a model suburban enclave within the major New York metropolitan area.

The exhibit complements social studies and Common Core curriculum with themes on the Colonial America/Native Americans, the American Revolution, Westward Expansion, Immigration, the Gilded Age, World War II and the 1950s.
