  • Truly a gem! Seems to be kept up beautifully. The staff is very knowledgeable and had fun anecdotes about Florence and the other artists who lived there. I've lived in Connecticut for a long time and just found out about this place over the summer. I plan to come back with friends!
  • Highly recommended. Very well maintained museum with interesting gardens and grounds. Great little cafe attached to the museum with coffee and drinks! The docents were very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about this little slice of Connecticut History
  • Very interesting! A great stop on the way from Boston to NY.
  • Excellent view, right along the water
  • This place was great much to see.
