COVID-19 UPDATE, June 1, 2020

Dear Friends,

Although Connecticut museums may be allowed to open on June 20, our first priority is to do everything in our power to keep the WDS family safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19. As much as we anticipate seeing visitors, members and co-workers, our immediate goals are to prepare for reopening at a future date by following state guidelines for operations and the mandatory self-certification process before opening.

Construction of the new Education and Visitor Center remains on schedule with an expected completion date in late July. We continue to work behind the scenes to maintain the property and plan for when we reopen. We are retaining all staff and look forward to their return to a normal work schedule.

We encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram, where we continue to post news and photos of our beautiful campus.

We look forward to welcoming you back to WDS at the earliest opportunity. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with questions in the meantime.


Cynthia Riccio

Director of Education
