Located in the heart of Waterbury’s downtown architectural district, the Mattatuck Museum is a vibrant destination, known locally and regionally as a community-focused institution of American art and history.

The collections span the history of American art from the colonial era to the present day with particular assets in the history of the Naugatuck Valley and Connecticut artists, as well as artists from around the world representing the diversity of its community. The collection includes more than 8,000 objects, including paintings, unique works on paper, photographs and sculptures.

The Mattatuck has embarked on a $9 million renovation project to redesign the museum while continuing to be a welcoming, inclusive, empowering and nurturing community anchor. The “new” Mattatuck Museum, designed by Ann Beha Architects, includes an extensive 14,000 square foot renovation of existing space and an addition of nearly 7,000 square feet to improve public access, educational programming, storage collections and exhibitions.
