It is a tiny museum worth visiting if you are in the area and have 15-20 mins on hands. Free admission. Exhibition is not very rich but it’s a good introduction to Danbury history. Old restaurant menus and photos are highlights of it.
Versatile, underutilized gem. Great resource and resources. Excellent people. Like many nonprofits, stepping up during this pandemic. Come see the outdoor exhibits. Call them to schedule your group events.
