The MATT @ Home

COVID-19 Update

The safety and health of visitors and staff is the highest priority at the Mattatuck Museum. With the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) within the United States, the Museum is keeping up to date with all CDC health-related plans and procedures. Visitor admission will be limited.

The Mattatuck Museum is currently open to visitors under Special Guidelines. Timed admission tickets must be purchased online prior to your visit. We are asking visitors to keep their visit to no more than 90 minutes and to arrive no more than 5 minutes ahead of your timed admission.

The Museum is currently presenting programming and family activities virtually, with some limited in-person attendance. Please see our calendar of events or purchase a timed ticket.
