We are pleased to report that the Stamford Museum & Nature Center marked its 80th Anniversary with a year of significant accomplishment, solid financial performance, and exciting plans for the future. From humble beginnings in 1936 in a three-room office in downtown Stamford, we have grown to be Stamford's premier nature-based destination, offering a rich canvas of educational programs, exhibitions, and special events, both as Stamford's fine art Museum and as Stamford's beloved Nature Center.

Our continued growth in all of these programs and services depends on your donations. Please know that membership and program fees cover only a portion of our operating expenses. Your investment in us through an end-of-year gift is meaningful.

We are proud to share our annual achievements highlighted in the 2015.16 Annual Report.
  • Our art exhibition programs welcomed 33,134 art and culture enthusiasts.
  • Our SM&NC-Aligned-With-The-Schools and After-School education programs served nearly 43,721 students.
  • 4,950 guests attended 65 private events at our unique site.
  • Membership, corporate volunteer programs, and exhibition attendance all saw robust growth last year, making 2015.16 a great success overall.
Annual Appeal giving is powerful. Please consider making a charitable contribution this year to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. Membership and program fees cover only a portion of our operating expenses, so we count on your support to help us continue to be a focal point for family activity and vital cultural and education resource for the community.
