The film, Ocean Fronteirs II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea, is an inspiring story of citizens working together for healthier economies and healthier seas across New England. The movie will appeal to anyone who cares about sustainability and the future of the planet.

The “Family Focus” activity, sponsored by People’s United Bank, is called “Heroes Day” and runs from 11-2. During those hours, visitors may join Museum Education staff for a scavenger hunt in the “Creating Community” exhibition gallery to explore and discover people who have made a difference in Fairfield. In addition, children can create a painted portrait of their own “hero” in the Museum’s education classroom. Children are encouraged to bring a photo or image of their hero to use for the art activity.

The Fairfield Museum is located at 370 Beach Road in Fairfield. For more information visit or call 203-259-1598. The Museum and Museum Shop are open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily. Admission is free for members and children ages 5 and under; $5 for adults; $3 for seniors/students. Program support comes from Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, CT Humanities and our generous community donors and corporate sponsors.
