The Mattatuck Museum is currently to visitors under Special Guidelines. The Museum is currently presenting programming and family activities virtually, with some limited in-person attendance. Please see our calendar of events here.
As we are temporarily without admission revenue, and funds are being diverted to help stop the virus, please remember that your support of The MATT at this time is crucial. Please consider making a donation.
