Mission: The Danbury Museum & Historical Society preserves, protects, and educates Danbury’s friends and neighbors about the heritage and history of the community. Situated in downtown Danbury, the museum preserves the John and Mary Rider House (c. 1785), the John Dodd Hat Shop (c. 1790), the Marian Anderson Studio, the King Street Schoolhouse, the Little Red Schoolhouse and the Charles Ives Birthplace. Huntington Hall, a modern exhibit building, contains the museum offices, research library and gift shop . 

Programs: In recent years the Museum has concentrated on highlighting Danbury’s local history and providing a rich diversity of programs. With many thanks to the Goodrich Corporation, the Museum hosted 10 programs in our January-June series focusing on local history and musical performances in the Marian Anderson Studio. The Museum has increased its school programming for Danbury children inclusive of tours and in school programs which reached over 1000 children in the last fiscal year alone.
Partners: Since July 1, 2008, the City and the Museum have become partners, forming the Danbury Museum & Historical Society Authority. The new Authority is an agency with a rich history and a bright future that will continue to meet the needs of the Danbury community.
