In preparation for our celebration of a half century showcasing the life of Eric Sloane through his superb collection of  early American tools, his painting and illustrations, his prolific writings, and his artistsí studio, the Eric Sloane Museum will be closing for the season on Monday, September 3, 2018. Starting in October, the museum  will be undergoing structural repairs and upgrades to secure the building and improve the visitor experience for the next half century.

The museum will remain open for its regular hours (Friday-Sunday, 10:00-4:00) through Sunday, September 2, 2018. Visitors are still welcome to explore the grounds of the museum and see the remains of the Kent Iron Furnace which produced iron during the 19th century and is a featured industrial site on the Connecticut Iron Trail. Events scheduled for the rest of the season will still take place as planned.
