Huntington Hall, the museum exhibit space, is filled with a wealth of interesting objects gleaned from the collections of individuals from The Greater Danbury area.

On display is an eclectic mix of objects including vintage bottle openers, angels, custard cups, militaria, American pottery, bells, abalone shell decorated items, Disney memorabilia, embroidered aprons & crocheted potholders, kites and more.

Due to the popularity of last year's exhibit, we're pleased to once again offer this opportunity to enthusiastic collectors from The Greater Danbury area.  It has proven to be a fun and exciting way to welcome the community to the museum and for individuals to share their passion for the art of collecting.
