Fairfield Historical Society & Museum

The Fairfield Museum and History Center was established in 2007 by the 103-year-old Fairfield Historical Society. The 13,000 square-foot museum presents engaging exhibition galleries, a special collection library and reading room, a family education center, an 80 seat theater overlooking Fairfield’s Town Green and a delightful museum shop.

The museum’s inaugural main exhibition, Landscape of Change, celebrates southwestern Connecticut’s rich history through engaging stories and treasured artifacts that date back to the seventeenth century. The exhibition was made possible in part by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council.

We hope you enjoy our work.
