The Bruce Museum is grateful to be part of a community that cares. It’s heartening to see how our community is coming together in new and meaningful ways.

Working remotely, Museum staff continue to engage with one another, and with volunteer leadership and members, to deliver high-quality educational opportunities for all ages through our Bruce at Home platform.

New: Virtual Exhibitions Now Online

Thank you for embracing our growing collection of online programs, learning activities, and other digital content. Of special note: The Museum has been proud to launch three new virtual exhibitions this month:

"On the Edge of the World: Masterworks by Laurits Andersen Ring from SMK—the National Gallery of Denmark."

Director of Exhibitions Anne von Stuelpnagel has created a fascinating online tour of the Museum’s acclaimed international exhibition of one of the most important figures in Danish art. The exhibition opened in February in the Museum’s newly renovated main gallery, organized in collaboration with SMK, the national gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen, and AFSMK, American Friends of SMK.

The virtual exhibition features a comprehensive overview of all of the paintings on view, as well as a series of brief videos by famed Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen commenting on the artwork of L.A. Ring and the key themes that represent the painter’s oeuvre. The newly launched microsite also includes a downloadable Family Gallery Guide designed to help virtual visitors discover and explore the artwork of Laurits Anderson Ring through the seasons.

"Under the Skin"

The Bruce Museum’s virtual tour of the science exhibition Under the Skin is now live! Developed by Curator of Science Daniel Ksepka with help from a worldwide team of fellow researchers, this site presents the objects and visualizations displayed in the physical exhibition along with bonus content and links to help explore the show’s themes more deeply.

"House on the Hill: The Changing Face of the Bruce Museum"

This online exhibition celebrates the changing profile of the Bruce Museum through its history and demonstrates its prominence in the community, both as a visible element and as a cherished institution.

Developed by Timothy Walsh, Collections Manager and, as the Museum’s archivist and resident historian, curator of the exhibition, House on the Hill includes numerous historical images that show the evolution of the structure from its conversion from mansion to modern museum highlighting the intersections of art and science.
