The Florence Griswold Museum is a beautiful yellow building located on Lyme Street. The story of the art museum is quite interesting: Florence Griswold opened her home to artists searching for a quiet country retreat where they could rejuvenate their spirits and find sources of inspiration. To honor Miss Florence, the Florence Griswold Museum was established and has flourished in exciting ways. It has many different exhibitions, and for those who are interested, it has professional photographs of many of the pieces in its collection for sale. The core mission of the museum is to educate visitors on Connecticut's art, history and landscape.
