Seasonal fun awaits you at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. Bring friends and enjoy a picnic on the Meadow, walk over 80 acres of nature trails, drop in to the Heckscher Farm and say hello to the animals, and don’t miss the latest exhibition in the Bendel Mansion Museum Galleries. The Overbrook Nature Center is the center piece for our nature programs at the SM&NC. Come and visit the exhibit area and pick up a map to explore our nature trails or meet there for an informative program with one of our naturalists. The Observatory is a research facility used by members of the Fairfield County Astronomical Society. Each Friday, weather permitting, visitors can enjoy viewing the moon, planets and deep space objects through the 22-inch research telescope.
