"Upon arrival in Old Lyme, I was immediately drawn to the outdoor exhibit of bird nests at the Florence Griswold Museum. My 16 year old and I were greeted by a team of volunteers who oriented us around the tranquil, riverside gardens adorned with whimsical and imaginative bird nests. Curiosity and more docents led us indoors to the collections of art. We were hooked on the Flo Gris and are elated to now be living in the neighborhood of such an inspired institution. I am now thoroughly enjoying the "Isms" exhibit and have taken one of the "Isms" classes. It is an honor to serve on the Membership Committee when I believe in the mission so strongly. Joining the Florence Griswold Museum is a must for anyone in the region, dare I say, the world?"
