At the Fairfield Museum, visitors enjoy engaging exhibitions,  whether that means exploring 375 years of regional history in “Creating Community” or changing exhibitions on art and history in the Patricia and Pearson Spaght Gallery, the Ruth Carlson Horn Gallery, and the Jacky Durrell Meeting Hall.

Programs and fun activities for families and youth include the Holiday Express Train Show, Family Days, Scavenger Hunts, Vacation Camps, the Halloween Spooky Stroll and Interactive Walking Tours exploring the Town Green Campus.

The Jacky Durrell Meeting Hall, overlooking the Town Green, hosts lectures, panels and shared discussions led by distinguished scholars, university professors and historians that illuminate history through dialogue and debate with the larger community.

Researchers from across the country utilize the unique resources in the Special Collections Library and Reading Room, including genealogy and family papers that date back to the 17th century.

The Museum Shop features a wide selection of Fairfield gifts and books.
