The Barnum Museum in downtown Bridgeport, Connecticut is the last surviving building attributed to the American visionary entrepreneur and entertainer Phineas Taylor Barnum (1810-1891).
Our museum gallery, currently installed in the People’s United Bank Gallery behind the historic Museum building, features artifacts that belonged to P.T. Barnum and Tom Thumb, pieces of historic Bridgeport, and a few extraordinary surprises!
We are open for viewing and tours from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, year-round.
Admission is free. (Donations are always appreciated!)
