Welcome to the website of the Florence Griswold Museum! If this is your first opportunity to get to know us, I invite you to explore this site and learn more about our robust offerings.

Situated along the picturesque Lieutenant River in Old Lyme, Connecticut, the Florence Griswold Museum embodies the artistic spirit of its legacy as the home of the Lyme Art Colony. From the impressive Georgian architecture of the home of namesake Florence Griswold, to the light-filled and modern spaces of the Krieble Gallery, to the rolling landscape of our 12-acre site, the Florence Griswold is a truly special place that is privileged to serve as the home of American Impressionism.

As an institution that embraces its future as much as its past, this website is one of a variety of platforms we embrace to reach our many audiences. I encourage you to use this resource to learn more about our unrivaled permanent collection, thought-provoking temporary exhibitions, and our online projects, such as SEE/change, History Blogand our online-exclusive exhibitions. Valuable information about our wide array of educational programs, upcoming events, the history of the site and how to best enjoy your visit to the Museum (including lunch at Café Flo!) is also readily available.

Whether you are a Museum member, Old Lyme resident, or visitor to the area, we look forward to making your relationship with the Florence Griswold Museum an unforgettable one. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, staff, and volunteers of the Florence Griswold Museum, I welcome you to our website and to the Flo Gris community.
