Bruce Museum of Arts and Science

    Bruce Museum Mission Statement

    The Bruce Museum promotes the understanding and appreciation of Art and Science to enrich the lives of all people.


    The Museum was originally built as a private home in 1853. Robert Moffat Bruce (1822-1908), a wealthy textile merchant and member of the New York Cotton Exchange, bought the house and property in 1858.

    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.”
