Westport Museum for History & Culture (WM), has been a cultural and educational organization dedicated to preserving, presenting and celebrating history since its founding in 1889.
Our mission is dedicated to embracing the truths of history so that all can see themselves in our American story.
We are a private museum inspiring the holistic and inclusive histories in the American story. Westport Museum hosts exhibits, programs and events for children and adults. We safeguard extensive collections including archives, costumes, objects, and art which are used to foster historical exploration. Westport Museum is not funded by the Town of Westport.
Westport Museum wishes to recognize and honor the Paugussett people who are the indigenous communities native to this region, and recognize that Westport Museum and the Town of Westport was built on unceded indigenous homelands and resources.
