VIRTUAL EXHIBITS

Back in 2018, Westport Museum held a year-long exhibit called “History of Westport in 100 Objects” in which we shared the nearly four hundred year history of the town using different objects. We are bringing back that always-popular exhibit here–virtually.

Westport Museum’s award winning exhibit retells the history of African American families in Westport from colonial days to the present. Out of a history born of slavery, black Westporters persevered, gaining freedom and creating lives in the town as educators, freedom fighters, artists, patriots and respected citizens.
