  • COVID-19 Update--Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed the Museum to the public through at least April 30, and have cancel all programs during this time. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon (and often!), but until then, we encourage you to visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to stay up-to-date about the Museum’s status and enjoy beautiful images, on-line exhibitions, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes videos. Should you need a staff member, call or email them as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends

My Sticker Book Guide to the Florence Griswold Museum

The Museum’s youngest patrons are sure to enjoy our newest keepsake publication, My Sticker Book Guide to the Florence Griswold Museum. The booklet, beautifully illustrated by Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts graduate and former Museum employee Kelsey Ross, tells the story of Miss Florence and her artist friends. Each time a child visits the Museum, they earn a sticker to complete one of the booklet illustrations. Those who collect all six stickers receive a gift certificate to the Museum Shop. One page of the booklet encourages children to write down or draw what they liked best during each visit.

A day of art, culture, and fun is a great value for families. Everyone 12 years old and under visits the Museum for free!
