The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is participating in the 15th annual Connecticut Open House Day — a unified celebration of the state’s art, history and tourism — on Saturday, June 8.
During this one-day event, the museum, along with more than 200 other organizations and attractions throughout the state, will open its doors and offer special $5 Mini-Tours.
Visitors will have a chance to view two new exhibitions, From Corsets to Suffrage: Victorian Women Trailblazers, which features the efforts of local women and men towards the fight for women’s right to vote, and Historic Grounds & Modern Gardens, a juried contemporary art exhibition.
To qualify for any Open House Day special, at least one person in each visiting group must show a valid Connecticut driver’s license. Open House Day also includes opportunities to become a Connecticut Ambassador as part of COT’s Ambassador Program, an ongoing initiative designed to cultivate pride among residents in the state’s many diverse historic, arts, tourism and entertainment treasures.
The statewide event, sponsored by the Connecticut Office of Tourism (COT), is designed to broaden awareness among residents of Connecticut’s exceptional cultural and tourism assets and encourage them to become ambassadors who share their newfound discoveries with visiting family and friends.
