Kick off the garden season in Old Lyme.
Visitors to the Museum understand immediately the site’s appeal to the artists who stayed at “Miss Florence” Griswold’s boardinghouse over a century ago. Her house, gardens, and river view were favored subjects of her artistic boarders. Highlights include, Garden Luncheon Friday, June 14 and Blooms with a View June 14, 15, and 16.
Join us for this exciting series of events that take place in and around the Museum’s historic gardens. This annual event is a ten-day celebration of the site’s historic gardens, featuring special events, and family activities. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of activities for all ages and interest levels. Most events are free with Museum admission.
