A Message From Catherine  
Now there is a great way to see the Mattatuck Museum - FREE! On the second Sunday of the month the museum opens its doors so that you can experience 300 years of awesome history, view spectacular art, ranging from sedate to boisterously colorful and delicate to boldly room-filling, and explore 10,000 exquisite buttons. There'll be games that keep you engaged and tours that answer your questions. Bring your friends and family, and expect the unexpected!
