Waterbury: A City of Transitions

Waterbury: A City of Transitions

The museum’s History Exhibit is reinstalled to tell stories of important transitional moments in the City’s past. Just as big changes in a person’s life cause them to reflect and choose a path forward, Waterbury’s history reveals how times of change created a city that adapted to continually move ahead. In refocusing the way history is told, the reinstalled gallery promotes connection between the visitor’s own life with Waterbury’s history, and encourages reflection on how moments of transition in a city’s story are not so different from a person’s life.
