Description

As we all hunker down to do our part to contain Corona Virus, there’s still lots we can do to engage each other and the community at large.

Although we are closed, the museum staff is hard at (remote!) work developing interesting, history-based activities for all ages.

Each week, we will be using our e-newsletter as well as our social media platforms to provide content, challenges, reviews of history-based books, videos, music and podcasts.

We’ll be posting historic recipes in which the whole family can participate and are exploring the idea of a classic-book read-along.

There will also be video content featuring items from our collection—a virtual version of our popular program series Tuesday Treasures--keep an eye out for those!

To start, we’re bringing back the popular year-long exhibit that we produced two years ago, which was generously sponsored by our friends at Bankwell.

That exhibit, "History of Westport in 100 Objects," explored the nearly four hundred year history of our town using objects from our collection and borrowed from other institutions. While we can’t show you the objects in person, we can show you their pictures and would love to hear your comments and thoughts. Email us at virtualmuseum@westporthistory.org. Visit the exhibit at westporthistory.org.

And look for info within each of these content areas to see how you can participate!

NOTE: We do our best to ensure all information is accurate, however it's a good idea to visit the website or call the venue to verify the information.
