Florence Griswold Museum

Listed under Art Collections in Connecticut, United States.

Pin It

100 years ago, the Florence Griswold Museum did not only house the works of famous impressionists artists, it housed those artists themselves. An artist colony provided by its namesake, the home today is open to visitors who wish to peruse its extensive collection of American Impressionism. Looking out over the lawn, you can almost pictures the artists with their canvases, sitting on the green grass waiting for inspiration.

An impressive array of artwork in this small Connecticut town is a happy surprise for visitors looking for a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
