Stratford Celebrates Museums In June
Visit One, or Two, or All Ten!
The Town of Stratford is home to more museums than most other towns in the State of Connecticut – 10 and growing! — and we’re proud to showcase them during the entire month of June this year. As part of Stratford Museums Month, each museum will offer a special, such as discounted or free admission, a discount on merchandise, etc.
A highlight of Stratford Museums Month is the “Hidden Gems Passport,” which will be available at each museum, the Stratford Public Library and Town Hall throughout the month of June.
While visiting a museum, patrons are encouraged to get their passports stamped; each stamp constitutes a chance to win the coveted Museums Swag Bag. At the conclusion of the campaign, visitors should email pictures of their passports to email@example.com or drop them off at Town Hall, Room 118.
“Each Stratford museum is a ‘hidden gem’ with a unique story to tell. Treasured artifacts that help tell those stories date back hundreds of years and are preserved and displayed with great care by the museums’ curators,” explains Stratford Mayor Laura R. Hoydick. “So come learn those stories and let them impact the way you see the world.”
