Located on an 11-acre site in the historic village of Old Lyme, the Florence Griswold Museum is known as the Home of American Impressionism. In addition to the restored Florence Griswold House, where the artists of the Lyme Art Colony lived, the Museum features a gallery of changing art exhibitions, education and landscape centers, extensive gardens, and a restored artist's studio. During the early years of the 20th century, the Lyme Art Colony, centered in Miss Florence Griswold's boardinghouse, became America's most famous summer art colony. Today this museum of art and history tells the story of how Connecticut played a pivotal role in fostering an authentic American art. The Museum is devoted to using its art, history, and setting to serve a growing audience of friends and visitors from around the world with programs, events, and changing exhibitions of art.
