Stamford Museum and Nature Center:
Stamford, CT

Where were you during the 2017 North America Solar Eclipse? I was at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center. Hundreds of people came to the Stamford Museum and Nature Center to enjoy the many eclipse themed activities and to enjoy the exhibitions and the planetarium.

Even when there is no major event like the eclipse, Stamford Museum and Nature Center has so many exciting things to see and do. Best of all, it is all real, all nature.

There is currently a large temporary exhibit on Maize, corn. This exhibit shows many kinds of corn, what corn is used for and many different interesting corn related facts and things are on display.

The ST&N Center doesn’t only talk about nature, they actually invite you to enjoy nature at its best. There are trails in the wooded area with a babbling brook running alongside it to hike and explore.

There is the Hekscher Farm and Otter Pond where there are farm animals, and believe it or not, Otters. There is also an herb garden, and a lake with ducks wandering around.

The Nature’s Playground is one of a kind with many slides in different lengths and styles winding through the hill. The bird’s nests and logs are really fun for children to play in. Stamford Museum and Nature Center offers genuine wholesome fun.
