• Fairfield Museum About

We inspire civic engagement by celebrating the diverse history of our region and its people.

The Fairfield Museum and History Center believes in the power of history, art, and humanities to inspire the imagination, stimulate thought, and transform society. We connect people around the complex history of Fairfield, CT and surrounding communities so that, together, we may shape a more informed future.

We believe the humanities and the arts are powerful platforms for examining and understanding the civic values and responsibilities of our democratic society. As a public forum for the process of shared discovery, we celebrate and cultivate the elements that create and bind community: complex stories and artistic expressions from multiple points of view that explore the diverse legacies of our region.
