The Bruce Museum was founded in 1908. The building dates back to 1853 and was originally the private home of Robert Moffat Bruce. Today, its mission is to encourage the appreciation of art and science to enrich peoples’ lives. In 1908, Robert Bruce bequeathed his home to the Town of Greenwich and stipulated that it be used “as a Natural History, Historical and Art Museum, for the use and benefit of the public.” The Bruce Museum is located at One Museum Drive in Greenwich. Also part of the Bruce Museum is the Seaside Center which is a beachside museum located on Greenwich Point. The Seaside Center aims to educate visitors about the ecology of Long Island Sound and environmental issues with a touch tank, coloring area, weekly activities, and weekly guided walks.  For information, call 203.869.0376 or visit www.brucemuseum.org.
