We parked in the expanded lot at their new Farmhouse Entrance, 151 Scofieldtown Road. After paying $7 each senior at the entry kiosk (using a card), we walked through the farmyard maze of fenced pastures and down to the pond bridge. Ahead was our goal, the Bendel Mansion built in the late 1920’s. While the main rooms/halls were open with historical pictures and information, the museum itself was closed. After seeing an 1862 garden sculpture of "Ruth," by Italian Giovanni Battista Lombardi, we returned along a wooded trail passing a large caged owl then along a stream that ended near the river otter pool where a multitude of ducks milled around the pond. Touring groups of children with their parents and sometimes grandparents were fascinated by the common farm animals which also included rare Mulefoot hogs, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Llamas and a Highland cow.
Clearly the focus here is to educate and entertain urban children and make a nice day outing for families in a natural setting.

My husband and I visited the Stamford Museum and Nature Center in Stamford Connecticut on Monday, April 19th, 2021. We found out about this museum because it is part of the CT Art Trail Passport Booklet, making it a good value. We visited primarily to see the Special Exhibit ‘Global Garden: Resonant Beauty, A Solo Exhibition of Orchid Paintings by Patricia Laspino’, which was excellent, being very inspirational. We were very impressed with this exhibit and feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to see it, since it is only on view until April 25th. I give this museum an excellent rating because of this exhibit. However, after it is over, I am not certain what will be on view at the museum because there is a gap of time between when this exhibit ends and when the next exhibit begins on May 21st, and the museum does not appear to have a permanent exhibit always on view. I provide more details about this exhibit in the Special Exhibit section of this write-up. The museum is located inside the Bendel Mansion, which has large rooms with nice architecture inside, but no rooms were set-up with furnishings depicting how it looked as a mansion.

The one issue we had with our visit was finding the museum from the farm parking lot. The directions say to park in the Heckscher Farm parking lot and not in the museum parking lot at this time. The museum is not close or even in view from the farm parking lot. We were provided with 2 maps as we entered the grounds, one in black and white the other a Trail Map. The museum is not very distinctively marked on the map that is in black and white, it just blended in with everything else. The Trail Map had it designated in red. Nevertheless, it took a while to find the museum from the Hechscher Farm parking lot. We were glad the weather was very nice because if it had been rainy or cold out, the walk from the parking lot to the museum wouldn’t have been very nice, in particular because it is hilly. So wear comfortable shoes. However, there was plenty of free parking in the Heckscher Parking Lot at the time of our visit. It just wasn’t convenient to the museum.

Special Exhibit: ‘Global Garden: Resonant Beauty, A Solo Exhibition of Orchid Paintings by Patricia Laspino’:

The paintings in this exhibit were both beautiful and impressive and together with the write-ups depicted a great mixture of art, culture, history, science, nature and addressed the impacts of Climate Change and Global Warming on various species of orchids as well as other types of flowers, including peonies. Each painting had a write-up with a title, flower facts, including specie of orchid or flower, bird (if applicable), native range (where each orchid grows) and artist notes. The artist notes were definitely quite interesting and educational and depicted specific features and characteristics about each orchid, including historic and scientific information, growth patterns, and the stories and experiences that the artist had with the flower.

This exhibit is truly amazing!! I never knew that there were so many diverse species of orchids from all over the world. The paintings and associated write-ups within this exhibit nicely reflect the many years of research studies that the artist put into their creation, effectively addressing the flowers and paintings from the perspective of their beauty, diversity, preservation and stewardship. It is definitely apparent that the artist was influenced by several artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as her botanist background. This exhibit was very well done and worth seeing.

The Heckscher Farm, Gardens, River Otter, Nature Center and Much More:

It was a nice walk through the farm, both to and from the museum. There was a nice variety of animals, to see and take pictures of that were all well-kept and had plenty of room to move about. The animals included chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, horses, cows and much more. The grounds and surrounding landscape were also scenic and nicely maintained.

We particularly enjoyed the River Otter, who didn’t come out until we opened the gate to where you could view him. Interesting information about River Otters, their environment, including their habitat and diet, was on display.

The Overbrook Nature Center and Gift Shop had taxidermy artifacts representing animals from the area on display, with educational write-ups as well as snakes and a rock collection. Interesting information about the seasons, bird migrations and the Atlantic Flyway were also on display.

The vegetable gardens were not in bloom at the time of our visit but did have garlic and leaves to strawberry plants sprouting up. These gardens, which are planted with over 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables, including dozens of heirloom varieties, would be nice to see later in the season.

The farm, which has an interesting history, is definitely great for families with young children but could also be enjoyed by adults. Picnic tables were available on the grounds making it nice for a family picnic. There were a variety of different trails, which we did not have an opportunity to take based on the amount of time we had available to us at the time of our visit. One that we missed, which would have been interesting to see, was the Sculpture Trail that appears to be relatively close to the museum based on the map in black and white. Our visit took about an hour and 20 minutes, with an emphasis on viewing the Special Exhibit in the museum, but included the areas mentioned above going to and from the museum.

It is great that this museum has been able to remain open with a wide range of hours during the pandemic and that we didn’t need timed tickets, giving a lot of flexibility in terms of the time of our arrival. The only issue we had with our visit was that we were not able to park close to the museum.

It is small but lovely get away with the little kids. They have one of the best Bald Eagles that exist along with other birds of prey.

The over 100 acre walking trails are scenic and spectacular.

The host camps for children in the summer with a great playground as well as harvest festivals.

Quite convenient with hours throughout the day from morning to evening each day.

We walked thru the Museum. It appeared they were cleaning up after an event, Noone paid us any attention. We enjoyed the farm animals, and especially the River Ferrets. That was the only time we saw a worker. He was very imformative about the Ferrets. The gift shop was sparse. The park was absolutely beautiful, but not informative.

If you're expecting to find a large museum packed with historical objects, you've come to the wrong place. If you'd like to spend an enjoyable afternoon getting up close and personal with nature, including goats and chipmunks, you'll be happy you've come. The Stamford Museum & Nature Center has beautiful walkways designed perfectly for those in a wheelchair or pushing a stroller. You can enjoy a picnic at one of the many quiet benches, take a quiet stroll through the woods, or visit the animals at the farm. The Museum itself was a bit disappointing. The staff were unfriendly and ignored me when I was there - despite the fact that no one else was in the building. They gossiped amongst themselves without even giving me a courtesy "hi." There wasn't much to write home about within the building, but the sculptures outside were nice. The museum shop/nature center are worth a visit, especially if you have kids. They have a pet snake and turtle, as well as important conservational information on display. You can buy a popsicle and borrow a backpack for a childhood adventure through the grounds.
Overall, I'd visit again for a nice day spent outside.

Stamford Museum and Nature Center has it all: animals, museum, decks, walking trails and a fabulous playground. There is something for almost every family member.
