The MATT @ Home

The Mattatuck Museum is currently closed to visitors. In-person programs and events have been postponed and will be rescheduled. The Museum is currently presenting programing and family activities virtually. 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.
