Stratford’s Hidden Gems Campaign to Launch with Inaugural Museum Day
The Town of Stratford wants to make sure you know all about our 9 museums and natural resources, so please join us for the inaugural Stratford Hidden Gems campaign. The Town is starting with Stratford Museum Day on June 11th
On Stratford Museum Day, all museum fees are waived, however donations are greatly appreciated.
“Most people are not aware that, in addition to our abundant natural resources, Stratford is home to nine museums” said Mayor Laura R. Hoydick. “The Hidden Gem’s concept invites the Stratford community and our neighbors to explore Stratford’s diverse museums and our spectacular waterfront and forest.”
Stratford Hidden Gems posters and postcards will be placed throughout Town in the coming weeks. The digital home of the campaign can be viewed at www.stratfordhiddengems.com, which features an interactive map linking users to each locations website.
