The Fairfield Museum features rotating art, culture, and history exhibitions. The ongoing "Creating Community: Exploring 375 Years of Our Past" exhibition invites visitors to explore the history of the region over the past four centuries.Three historic buildings on the Museum Commons are open to the public during the summer, including a Victorian kids' cottage, Victorian barn, and the Sun Tavern (c. 1780) where George Washington visited. Visitors can take self-guided tours of the historic town green and the old burying ground. The museum has a library and reading room, featuring one of the state's largest collections of materials on Connecticut history. Educational, cultural, and arts programs, as well as field trips, are offered throughout the year; the museum shop is open daily.
