People’s sponsors free admission at Fairfield Museum

In honor of the 375th anniversary of Fairfield’s founding, People’s United Bank will sponsor free admission at the Fairfield Museum and History Center every Monday and Tuesday in 2014.

“Our 172-year history and the history of the Town of Fairfield have always been closely intertwined,” said Armando Goncalves, the bank’s senior vice president and market president. “We hope that this sponsorship will afford many people the opportunity to visit the Fairfield Museum and learn more about our wonderful heritage. We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with Fairfield and its surrounding communities throughout 2014.”

The museum welcomes more than 16,000 visitors and provides educational programming to more than 5,000 students annually. Currently on view is the hands-on exhibit, “Creating Community: Exploring 375 Years of Our Past,” featuring authentic Native American artifacts, Revolutionary War items and maps showing the area’s changes over time. The oldest object on display is a Bible from 1608.

“Begin Your Week Exploring the Past with People’s United Bank” will cover the cost of regular admission for all museum visitors on Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is normally $5 for adults and $3 for students and seniors.

“People’s United Bank has been a longtime and generous supporter of the museum and its educational programming for families throughout this area,” said Mike Jehle, museum executive director. “Its sponsorship will help ensure as many visitors as possible can enjoy our exhibits and events.”
