The Heart of Bristol

 

Bristol’s heart is the engine that pumps passion into everything we do. Each week, we’ll be highlighting the heart of what makes Bristol the place to BE – the businesses, the organizations, City employees, and our Bristol citizens.

Bristol NonProfit

Experience the magic of Bristol’s museums in your own community! The Making Memories Passport Program runs from June 8 through September 21, 2019.

Museum Collaborative Passport Program

Visit one of Bristol’s museums to get your passport stamped, like this family did recently at the American Clock & Watch Museum.

This week we’re highlighting the Museum Collaborative which includes the American Clock & Watch Museum, Bristol Historical Society, Environmental Learning Centers/Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center, Imagine Nation: A Museum Early Learning Center, Memorial Military Museum, and The New England Carousel Museum

Make Memories in Bristol’s Museums This Summer!

Bristol’s Museum Collaborative was founded more than ten years ago to facilitate collaboration among the Bristol-area museums in order to provide a high-quality cultural experience to the residents of Bristol and extended communities. Their aim is to represent the town in the best possible light at local events, and to market and represent Bristol beyond its borders. Working together, they present exceptional programming and special events at affordable prices to the Greater Bristol community.

Bristol’s Museum Collaborative encourages you to tour six of our City’s wonderful museums this summer! From June 8 through September 21, 2019, the Collaborative is offering a special passport that invites visitors to Make Memories in Bristol’s Museums!

In celebration of Bristol’s Museums, we hope to bring visitors from far and wide to our City to visit the participating museums and that Bristol residents come out to see what their City has to offer. This is an opportunity to bring the entire family to experience the Magic of the Museums in your own community.

Bristol's Musuem Collaborative Passport Program

Museum Collaborative Passport Program: Making Memories in Bristol’s Museums!

Participating museums include the American Clock & Watch Museum, Bristol Historical Society, Environmental Learning Centers/Harry C.
