The main house is OK but nothing special. But the history of the area’s hatting industry and Marian Anderson’s Studio and history make it worth a visit. Also sponsors a number of activities.
My husband is a history teacher and he has used this site to teach his High School students about the history of Danbury. What a great resource for research as well.
Danbury has such an incredibly rich and exciting hidden history! Where better to learn all about it than the Danbury Museum! Stop in and meet the friendly and knowledgeable staff, check out the gift shop, see where Marian Anderson rehearsed and learn about hatting! A must see for anyone who lives or works in Danbury and the surrounding area!
Growing up in Danbury, this place had many things to bring back great memories of the old Danbury. It is not packed full of things....I wish they had more....but it was very interesting and fun to look at what they had.
We knew it by the name of "The Scott Fanton Museum" as kids. Now, it is a place to learn about our history and how we have come to be Danbury!. Bridget and Dianne are awesome at telling our history! They are mesmerizing!
Thanks very much for your glowing review of The Danbury Museum & Historical Society. You are welcome to visit anytime... 更多
