The SM&NC is a place for families. Come discover, learn, and enjoy.

Seasonal fun awaits you at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. Bring friends and enjoy a picnic on the Meadow, walk over 80 acres of nature trails, drop in to the Heckscher Farm and say hello to the animals, and bring the whole group to see the exhibition on view in the Stamford Museum Galleries.
