Groundbreaking ceremonies took place on Monday, October 2 for the long awaited new facilities and campus improvements. The Farmhouse Education Center is the first education building addition to the 118 acre Stamford Museum and Nature Center in 50 years. The Center straddles competing objectives of a dynamic civic space for public programs and an intimate, contemplative environment for viewing the working farm. The museum is expanding educational programs, such as family camp, farm-to-table cooking classes, youth, professional development as well as cultural and social programs. It supports museum festival days and events such as the Maple Sugar and Cidering Festival and Harvest Festival.

The 3,500 sq.ft. Center designed by TSKP STUDIO provides educational spaces, gathering spaces and visitor services and a new entrance to the Farm museum. It includes a multi-purpose space with commercial kitchen and an open deck overlooking an existing paddock, a Maple Sugar and Cidering House, expanded parking, additional paddocks and a variety of outdoor gathering spaces for informal and group programs. Architect, Whit Iglehart says, “the SM+NC is a wonderfully vibrant regional resource for people and families looking to enjoy and learn about our environment and this expansion will greatly improve the visitors’ experience and facilitates their vision for growth.”
